The challenge at Merry Monday is to use the colors Black, White, Gray and Silver, which worked real good for this image but, I saw that some of the Designer Team cards had a bit of color so I took a chance and added just a little ''glow'' to the candle.
Here is a close up of it and also, of the silver Holly leaves and the silver thread bow that looks so pretty adorning this lamp post, it was a real pickle to tie this bow, sheeesh!!
The falling snow is stamped with one of the stamps on the SU set "Gorgeous Grunge" I used it also to stamp the inside of my card, just to finish it, the sentiment is from my stash. The one in the front of the card is from Power Poppy Merry Littles , I also used the little candle stick in this set to stamp the candle inside the lamp, I just masked the bottom part.
I colored this lamp post with my black Prismacolor pencil and blended the color a little with a paper stump dipped in baby oil.
Here is the picture of the finished inside of my card.
I thought you might like to see the super old punch I used to punch the Holly leaves, it's from a company called McGill.
Here is the banners that inspired my card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
