Holiday's Delight

This card was made in combination of this week's Our Creative Corner challenge, which is is all about Christmas; and Wednesday's Splitcoast Sketch Challenge #291 that I used for my layout.  See below.
At first I had a hard time visualizing what I would do, but when I took out my brand new Greeting Card Kids set from SU, I knew.  The set comes without sentiments.  Since it looks very old fashioned, I pulled out my Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas stamp set, and used a sentiment from there.  These Greeting Card Kids images remind me so much of these little Gurley Holiday Candles that my beloved Aunt Gina used to give to my sisters and I at holiday time.  There were Halloween candles, Thanksgiving candles and Christmas.  We  always put them on our holiday dinner table.  You can get them at the Vermont Country Store.  These SU images are very nostalgic to me.  I love them.

Here are my supplies:
Stamps~SU Holiday Card Kids, Crafty Secrets Vintage Christmas.
Ink~Momento Rich Cocoa, Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink.
Paper~Nenah Solar White, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red,SU Merry Moment DSP (R), Creative Memories Metallic Gold.
Accessories~SU Alpine 5/8" striped grosgrain ribbon (R), gold brads, Polar White Flower Soft, Flower Soft Glue, Gold Stickles, Copics, Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Mat pack & piercing tool.
