A Candle Book Shaker Card

Hi There
Today to share with you is something I have been making over the last few weeks. I had painted the gorgeous Saturated Canary image weeks ago, but ive been so busy with other things I haven't had the time to finish it.

The other dilema was what to do with it. Put it in a photo frame or card? In the end I decided on a book candle shaker card.
 Papers Ive used are the gorgeous Riddersholm 'Christmas Story'. Im so in love with these papers♥♥
The greens and Creams are soooo  wauwwwwww ♥♥
 I also managed to find some Pine Tree smelling candles... :D

 Ive coloured 'Breeze' with Distress Re-Inker Black Soot.


 For the snow in the shaker card Ive used Mica flakes and glass pieces
Other Dies used are 
DooHickeys Christmas Tags, Ferns and So Wrapped Fern Tag
Dees Distinctively Die-Tree
Sizzix Reindeer Flight and Snowflake Border
Flowers, Cheesecloth and Seam Binding is from the Ribbon Girls

Thankyou so much for visiting me

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog

We will let you know tomorrow morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs and there will be a 3rd prize of a clear set of our baby companion stamps 

Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;

Here’s my card 

Next stop is the gorgeous Dena and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there

Finally, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before they go on sale
