Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #238 - Let it Shine!

Welcome to a new FTTC post for Flourishes! Cheryl is our hostess for today and she has a really clever challenge for you! She says the challenge is "Let it Shine" this week! What does that mean? Just incorporate some kind of light source in your card  - lamp, candle, sunshine... any kind of light source! Check out what enlightened projects the Timeless Tuesday ladies have created for your inspiration today:

Jenny Gropp - you are here!
Kathy Roneyour September guest designer

 I went with a candle as my light source for the challenge, using the Christmas Candles set. I cut the image out using the Perfectly Pierced Hourglass Die

 To create a little glow.... I used a circle punch to create a mask and did a little quick airbrushing using Copic Y11.

 The center panels are all popped up using foam tape for dimension. On the glass I added a very thin coat of Crackle Accents to add a little shine. Glossy Accents on the little berries around the hurricane glass.

Here is the inside.... The sentiment is also from the same Christmas Candle Set.
