PSC47 - Sweet Pea - Winterberry candle

Good morning and happy Sunday! Are you in a Christmas mood? I sure am - we put up our tree yesterday and the kids were singing Christmas songs the whole day. Today's Paper Sundaes challenge is to make a gift - card, tag, gift bag ...anything you want to give away.
I decided to use my new Winterberry stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps and decorate a candle. I made several decorated candles this season , but none of them had a colored in image - so this is first for me. The image was stamped with Memento on tissue paper and colored with Copics. One thing I observed - you have to use darker colors than you would use on regular CS, as the tissue paper is really thin and lot of ink gets through. Not the perfect paper for fancy blending either ;)
I added lots of Stickles on the snowflakes and berries, unfortunately it's not very visible on the picture. Then I added a paper band (Bo Bunny - Winter Joy) with ribbon and some rhinestones all around the candle.

All Sorts - Light up the night - it says the image has to have a candle/light on it, but hope a real candle is ok too ;)
Really Reasonable Ribbon - anything but a card - winter theme
