MC Sept/13 - Candles - It Is Christmas

My friend was showing me a bunch of cards yesterday and this fold really caught my eye... Loved it and told her I was copying it. BIG GRIN Her's had a more traditional - square-ish - piece on the flap, whereas I opted to use the candles... I'll make one eventually with a square-ish center piece.

Anyway, I'm also using my newest acquisition... Silhouette Cameo. Love the machine, it cuts smooth as a baby's bottom. But I definitely do not like their instruction booklet that comes with the machine or their PDF for their software. Useless... So needless to say I was getting very frustrated trying to turn my jpg images into something that would cut... Finally today I contacted Sure Cuts A Lot to see if I could get the upgrade #3 without destroying the version 2 I have now that I used with my Cricut. They said yes and I downloaded it - FOR FREE -  AND IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM.

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on card image. Enjoy

PS please don't ask me how I got what looks like a glow on the card from the candles... it's either the angels above or a fluke...

And it fits for these challenges:
Flourishes  #236  use 2 kinds of ribbon
Papertake Weekly  Anything goes
Fab n Funky  #103 use opposite colors on a color wheel (red & green)
Trimmie's Craft Challenge  #223 Xmas
Pile it On Challenge  #35 anything that flickers

Gorgeous card and the whisper of the image in the background is so clever. I love the soft colours and splash of bling with the ribbon.

Thank you for playing along at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.
