Design Dollies- Element Challenge

This weeks element challenge at Design Dollies is titled This Little Light... you should create something with a candle on it.  Seems simple but I didnt have anything with a candle on it.  Nothing! So I decided to make a candle out of felt... I wanted to make a Christmas card....so well it isnt the greatest but it is done! I also made a little of my own glam varnish (Tattered Angels make a whole line of great ones).  I wanted it to be finer glimmer than what is in the TA glam so I mixed glossy varnish with some Perfect Pearls.  It was perfect.  I painted it over the cardstock Santa tag.   It really makes it look cool... but unfortunately you cant see it in the pics. I also used stickes to add a little glitter to the holly berries and leaves.  I think this is just one of those projects that are better in person! Have fun with this weeks challenges over at Design Dollies!


  1. oooh! you're a little early-ish, girlfriend! but this is gorgeous. xo

  2. Blogger is retarded sometimes and has a mind of its own. I told it to post at 2:30pm (which would be 8:30am EST) and it has that time but since that is still in the future I dont know why it didnt schedule it....

  3. OMG I love the card, it's beautiful!
