Freshly Made Sketches: Sending Joy

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Judy and here’s what I did with it!
12.2 FMS 

The dies in the my little scene are from my most-used set from last Christmas. It's Honey Bee Stamps Winter Bouqet. I hadn't pulled it out yet this year so it was overdue.  The candle is actually taller - I cut it and moved the die to cut again so it was shorter and more in line with the squares of the sketch.  The sentiment is new this year from Honey Bee.

I'm not 100% true to the sketch. My candle should be to the right. I just mis-remembered the sketch as I was adhering things. I was a bit sad when I looked at the sketch again and realized that because I had been fairly thrilled with the way I came up with doing the sentiment.  I remember that it was to the left and I was struggling with that.  Then I saw the stamp and die combo and realized I could put it to the left but have the weight of it under the candle.

Plaid has been so trendy this year and I really hadn't used any (not that I use a lot of patterned paper anyway!!) I originally was going to doing my usual white and sponge on a golden glow for the candle.  I still like that idea - but I had a paper pack out on my desk from doing this card and the plaid caught my eye.  I love happy accidents (or messy desks!)

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
