Mixed Media Candle

Hope I did this right, I decided to try something new, so, here is my mixed media candle.  I am entering this in several contests. I looked at them all and tried to decide how I could incorporated all the elements into one project.  For the Papercrafter's Corner I went with the colors, red, a little green, black writing, silver and gray for the hair color Dumbo and the light gives a golden hue shown in a few areas.  For the Unity November challenge it was similar colors.  And for the Mixed Media it was using stamps (Unity stamps were being featured) I did use a Heidi Swap stamp set of words  and left them on the acetate and stamped the whole set vellum and used black embossing powder and heat set it, however, the spotlight was on the Unity Stamp "Everything Christmas" which I stamped on vellum using silver ink I recently acquired and after it dried I  fussy cut it out, backed the frame portion with white paper so once it was wrapped around the words everywhere except the sentiment would.  My friend gave me the wire petals  a while ago and so I took 3 of them and tied them together to make the wreath and decorated it with Maya Road ribbon I won earlier this year and other various ones I had on hand and roses that I had tucked away for sometime that another friend gave me.   Hope you like it..
