Back in my Groove w/Paper Smooches

Today was the day I chose to get back into challenge participation.   I have been so busy at work, was away for a week on  vacation, and what little time I have had I've devoted to creativity for my LSS, New England Scrapbook Company.  But the challenges keep me interested and keep my creativity flowing.  I am so happy to be challenging myself again!  

And so I picked the Sparks Challenge from Paper Smooches.  Here is this week's inspiration photo. . .

And here is my design . . . 

And a closer view . . . 

I paper-pieced the candles using paper from the 6 x 6 Echo Park pad.  Love those little pads for card making.  I created the drip wax by using Ranger InkEssentials White Enamel. The flames are just marker and Stickles.  

Hoping to hit at least two challenges each week.  Fingers crossed!!

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock, Echo Park 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Paper Smooches Stamps, Stazon Ink, Ranger White Enamel, Stampin' Up Ribbon, Stickles, Stampin' Up Marker
