Christmas candles

Good morning, another fortnight has flown past and I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Creative Moments.  I used a beautiful image from Digistamps4joy, one of fabulous sponsors for this challenge. I coloured these lovely festive candles with my copics and a touch of sparkle pen , die cut into a circle and mounted onto gold card. I created a tag shaped card and covered it with red dp embossed the edges with gold embossing powder. I added some die cuts, a few pearls and attached a gold bow with a little tree brad..
Apologies for the photos, had to use a flash and it reflected from the red paper which has a lovely sheen to it.
As I'm desperately adding to my Christmas card stash I made another card using the same image and papers
