Starting 2012 with a challenge!

Thought I'd take the plunge & enter the Gingersnap Creations Random Redhead Challenge which is 

Candelabras. Chandeliers and Candles

I stamped my images, the candelabra is from my new Andy Skinner stamp set & I believe the chandelier was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine. 

I layered the matted images which I inked the edges of to give a vintage look, using toning papers.

 I used stickles to accentuate the candelabra & added a touch of ribbon behind the matting & then added the  spiral metal embellishments to finish.
