Elegant Lady Candle Card

Hi friends and followers,

Today I thought I would share with you a card I made using 'A Touch of Elegance' Cd rom by Cupcakecrafting. It was shown on Create and Craft on the 4 day deal but I haven't posted it yet on my blog.

It is an easel card with a box with scented tealights in it to act as the stopper. I used a backing paper from the Cd and matted this onto black card. This was placed on the base and on the easel part. I also made the box fro the stopper from the same backing paper. I matted the topper onto black card and then layered this onto the backing paper which was itself matted onto black card.

In the top right hand corner I placed a cream feather and placed a large hatpin into this. On the bottom towards the left hand side, I added a string of pearls to add interest.

I chose purple and cream tealights and placed these in the box. I attached a purple flower to one side of the box and two on the other side. These were purchased from Joanna Sheen a while ago and I have forgotten their name - sorry.

Thank you for taking the time to pop over and leave a comment, I appreciate it.
