Merry Monday

At Merry Monday the challenge is to Create a Christmas card with Candles and Flowers.
I started with a pretty Christmas paper featuring holly that I have.
Next I fussy cut pointsettias from another sheet of paper.
The 3 candles are actually chipboard fenceposts from a set I had.
I inked the stem of them with a gold shimmery ink I own but it hasn't shown up very well.
The flames are done with inca gold paste.
As I was positioning them on the card they, of course, landed face down.
 This left smears of inca gold, but I will call it glow from the candles shall I?
I glued 3 gold stars and my sentiment and there you have it.
