Christmas in May

I've been wanting to do a Stampendous challenge & finally got something made.  The challenge is to create a gift HERE.  I don't need anything for Mother's Day or graduation, but I always need a little something for people at work.  I bought this little candle last year & didn't get it decorated, so decided that would be a good project.  I stamped the designs from Stampendous Bold Blossoms set on tissue paper using Delicata Golden Glitz.  The images are adhered using wax paper & my heat gun.  I added some red dot stickers, gold silk ribbon & a red rose to finish it off.  


This spring I've had lots of birds at my feeders & finally got a shot of a pair of goldfinches that come frequently & stay a long time, unless the dogs or I spook them!  Aren't they beautiful?
