Roses on Paper Challenge ~ Gifts

Good Morning!
Today is a new challenge over at
Roses on Paper. Anki wants you to
make a gift for someone. Your choice.
My friend couldn't make it to Kelsey's first
Communion so her and her family made a trip up
this week-end to see her.  I wanted to make
something more special than a thank you card so I seen
this on Lene's blog and thought it was perfect as she
loves candles! Very easy but looks gorgeous!

I had to change the measurements as my tealights were
a tad big for the tutorial. I wen with this cutie for the image.

Of course I wanted to do shabby chic so I have
yet again went crazy with my distress crackle paint!
The papers are from Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine and
the flowers are from Prima. Circle sentiment is from Catslife
Press and the other is from WOJ.

Here is another view from the side. I even decorated the
edges with the paint on the sides as well!

Well thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you can find
time to play along! I love this challenge as I hope
to get some idea!! LOL
I hope you all have a fabulous day!!!
