Avadares Christmas challenge

Hi everyone,
Back again with another Christmas card. I was so excited when I was a winner in the last Avadares challenge and was asked to be the GD for November. If you go to the blog you will be able to collect this gorgeous image called "A little Faith" and see all the lovely cards made by the DT for the challenge which this month has the theme  Christmas or Hanakkah

I decided to make a Z-Fold card for a change, using some of my Papermania paper from last year. This pad is down to just odd pieces now, and will have to look for some more Christmas paper.
I coloured my candle with a pearlescent paint, printed an extra copy to cut out the leaves and raise them with silicon, The berries are made with puffy paint. Cut it out with an X-cut and used a Noor design die for the corners. Pearls and a peel-off sentiment finished it off,

I do hope you will join us. You have a whole month to create something, so please come and show us your creations.

I will be back later to link up to some challenges.
