My decorated Candle for Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Anything But a Card" Challenge.

Hello Everyone!
Today starts a new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings blog.
This time we want you to show us your non card skills. ;)
We are doing a Winter theme with ribbon, but it has to be "Anything But a Card". How fun is that!?!

My project is this pillar candle that I just wrapped with foil paper, and embellished with ribbon flowers and pearls....oh my. ;).

I colored the white stamens with my Copic marker and sponged the tips of some of the flowers, to match the paper color, then added some Martha Stewart punch snowflakes.

Hope you will come join us in the challenge. You could win one of 2 gift certificates!
For all of the details and inspiration from the rest of the team, head on over to Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings.

I would love a quick comment so I will know you were here! :)

Thanks and hugs,
True :D

PS...My friend Karen has some blog candy up for grabs over on her blog "Creative Yearnings". Why not go check it out?  ;)
