Opposites Attract

Opposites attract is the theme for this challenge on Flourishes blog.  We were to use the same stamp set for two totally different looks.  For this card I'm using their stamp set,  Christmas Candles and this card is made into a birthday card.  I used their key hole die cut for the shape around the candle, then I traced the outer edge to make the backing for it.  The beautiful Victorian flourish and leaf flourish are from
Cheery Lynn.  The fern is a MS punch and the rose is from Prima. Background paper is adhesive fabric paper from JoAnn's.  I colored the image with copic markers and added some stickles.
For my Christmas card I used the same stamp and die cut, added some holly leaves from a MS punch and the spellbinders poinsettia.  Colored the image with copic markers and added glitter to the hurricane and candle.  I used a pre-made bow and ribbon to finish the card.
