candy pip and matching candle

Hi all
 I thought i would try my hand at something new....candle decorating.... and i really enjoyed it so there will be many more to come i am sure.It is my 1st ever one so be gentle!!!!!
I have used the candy pip sugar nellie stamp and my promarkers for the card and candle.The papers are first edition love letters 6x6  pad.
The flowers are from mulberry crafts,
The lace is from my stash and the ribbons and gems are  from meiflower crafts
I used and embossing folder from CB and a free sentiment from sentiments4you.The  vanilla candle was only a cheap one from a local shop as it never has to be burned .I think i will buy white candles for any future ones i do.
I created the card with nesties and used my stampin up bird punch for the leaves.
