This Little Light of Mine....

"This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine...." This is a happy song from childhood and Stampin' Sisters verse for inspiration to the challenge this week has brought back the memory. The verse is Luke 8:16 "No one, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed, but sets it on a lampstand, that those who enter may see the light." Dt
member Peggy Sue's challenge is to make a votive holder, or a card or project with a candle on it. I was pointed to a tutorial for a luminaria by Beate when I visited another DT member, Chris. Make your own light and share your creation with us! I plan to make many little lights with the gold pansies and let them shine at our anniversary party. Gold - yup! Pure Gold! It's our 50th this year.



Some details: Pansy stamp by Rubber Stampede, fine line gold ep on vellum, textured cardstock DCWV, nestabilities, copper tape, cuttlebug embossing folder, flowers, pearls, ribbon from stash, glass globs for feet (I thought this made it less "tipable.")
