Addicted to Stamps and More #55

Happy Wednesday my crafting chums,

It's time for our photo challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. And this week we have this scrumptious photo to inspire you;

Gosh there is so much here that you could use as inspiration. I am hoping that it is pretty obvious from my card that you can see that it is the whole photo that inspired me!

I was really in the mood for heat embossing when I made this card. And I took advantage of this feeling and heat embossed the sentiment and all the separate little candles. Added a few gems and dry embossed the background card stock. I do love pink and black together and when the pink is embossing powder it gives a really dramatic finish...well I think so!

So what does this photo inspire you to create?? Pop over to our blog here to see the fabulous projects that our DT have created this week. Then get inky and play along. 

Our top addict this week will get to choose a bundle of goodies from our sponsor MelonHeadz Illustrations.

Have fun, I am really looking forward to visiting your blogs to see how we have got you stamping this week x
