CAS(E) this Sketch! #150.....

Hello everyone: I'm here with a card to share with you for CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge #150, here is my card.
This little candles with their golden holders are from a Power Poppy stamp set called Merry Littles , this set has a whole bunch of sweet little images and this candles are one of them.  I stamped the candles onto a panel of Canson water color paper using my MISTI to be able to position them exactly where I wanted them, then I colored them with the aqua painter and SU markers in Real Red, Garden Green, More Mustard, So Saffron and River Rock (for the candles). The mantel where they are standing was stamped with the SU Hardwood background stamp and then, I die cut it with Tim Holtz Alterations Die Window and Window Box , I made a couple of score lines to give it a bi of dimension. 
The sentiment was stamped with the retired SU "Curly Cute" stamp set, then heat embossed in gold.
I sponged a bit of SU Hello Honey ink on the flames to give this candles a little glow.
Here is the banner that inspired this card, I just changed the position of the sentiment placing it on the bottom.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
