Light a Candle

 Kathy dared us this week at Daring Cardmakers';

 "Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared."    ~Buddha

We light a candle for so many reasons - and not just because there's a power cut! 
We light them to bring a warm, cosy glow to our home, we use them as part of a celebration; Birthdays, Christmas or other festival. We light them in remembrance of those we have loved and lost.  Somehow that little pinprick of light holds and focusses the attention, doesn't it?
So this week I'd simply like to see some candles on your cards, whether its just one candle or lots of them - and for any reason you want.

here's my card;

I added a cardboard frame inside to hold a tealight;

And here's the completed tealight card;

the sentiment is a free printable from Studio Calico - printed onto vellum to allow the tealight to shine through it :) and the arrows I made in Photoshop;

I also used Crate Paper paper and leaf, adhesive pearls and fun foam die cut frames, cut with Spellbinders dies.

TFL and don't to forget to check out the brilliant creations made by the rest of the DT on the Daring Cardmakers' blog :)

I think it's a brilliant idea that you made a mini-lantern-card for a (more or less) real candle!
