Christening Card & Candle (abc challenge card) & Forever Friends Challenge

I finally got my candle done last night. I was a bit worried as I had left it 'til the last minute (typical of me) and didn't want to keep doing it over and over, but after some advice from my friends on the DC site I just went for it and I'm really pleased with my first attempt.

I'd made the card earlier this week and love the way all the blue tones go together and the FF image is soooooo cute. I'm going to enter the card in the abc challenge as it is Q for quick cards this week and the Forever Friends challenge which is using circles on your cards.

IMAGE: Forever Friends, coloured with watercolour pencils.
PAPERS: From Crafters Companion Papercrafts CD.
WHITE VELLUM: (on top of hearts paper) from stash.
SENTIMENT: Printed on computer and punched out.
RIBBON: From stash.
