Candlelight Tilda Tealight Card

OK I'm officially hooked on these little cards! This time I've filled it with tea lights - I didn't think they'd fit, but as you can see from one of the pictures below, fit they did!!

I decided that I use Candlelight Tilda on this one as she is so gorgeous and I have to admit that this is her first outing. I coloured her with Promarkers and inked the edges of the die cut with Distress Inks. I added some stickles and glossy accents to the candle and her hairband. I'm sorry for the picture quality today, the light here is appalling and I just cannot capture the shimmer and shine of this card.

The fern spray was cut using my Little Clare's Die and the flowers were punched using a Nellie Snellon floral punch. I edged the flowers with gold Stickles. The pearls in the centre of the flowers were made using a Viva Pearl Pen.

Thanks for stopping by.
