Thanksgiving Candle

Tic-Tac-Toe! by Simon.Says.Stamp
Bingo Board for the Challenge
Thought I'd share my entry for the second SSS Flickr challenge, which I was lucky enough to win!  I love my one SSS die of these gorgeous leaves & because of it's size I thought it'd be a great way to decorate a candle.  I sponged with Distress Inks & sprayed with Therm-O-Web gold Glimmer Mist.  It is the most gorgeous spray-on glitter you can imagine!
I have a lot of alphabet stickers, but don't use them very often.  Sure glad I had these--just what I needed. I wanted to add twine, but it just seemed to detract.  May be a gift for a family member or I may just keep it!  
As you can see, I used the diagonal line of Die Cut, Autumn, Glitter.  So glad you came by.  I may be quiet for a few days as I won't have my computer & a smart phone is a poor substitute--at least for me!
Edited to add: Entering the challenge at Die Cut Divas--thanks, Dawn.
