Not four but three candles!

You remember the classic Two Ronnies sketch? 
Sorry but this is just a post to share a card with three candles I made for this month's HLS Anything Goes with dies challenge which starts today!

This is another of the light up cards I made on the HLS retreat in November. When I got home I decided to juj it up a bit with some gold mirri card, Like the snowflake I posted earlier, it lights up when you press the middle of the greeting. The frame looks a bit wonky but it was actually the sunlight reflecting off the mirri card frame, mirri card is a nightmare to photograph.
After cutting out the Memory Box die from white card I coloured the flames and leaves with Copic before adding some red glitter embossing powder to the ends of the sprigs before heating to set. 
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with gold EP and the centers of the candles put back in and then the group was glued over the circuit, see Kylie's video here for details.
Once home I added the gold frame and foliage.
So for more die cut inspiration check out the rest of the team here.
