Need a little inspiration?  
We have a special guest this month!  Hazel Hodgkins from Hazel's Paper Designs!  I hope you'll give her a big hello! After checking out Hazel, cruise on to the DT's blogs and see what they have today:

 I went for a clean and simple feel today, but somehow still ended up with six layers. I only stamped a portion  of the candle image... it has a little handle and holly attached to it, but it didn't fit in to my stamp plan. I simply masked it off before stamping. 

 On the inside I used Versafne Crimson Red to stamp the sentiment. Isn't this wording perfect with the candle image?

I colored the image with Copics. Some of the layers are popped up using foam tape to add a little dimension. Finished card is an A2.
