"Autumn Home Decor Candle"

Hello My Crafty Friends,
Did you all enjoy your long weekend?? We had a fantastic long weekend and enjoyed some delicious food.  My sister added some Teriyaki sauce to the Carne Asada and OMG it was delicious!!  I'd never thought of adding Teriyaki sauce to my Carne Asada.  You guys have to give it a try!

Today is a brand NEW Challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate. For Challenge #33, we are asking you to create any project to be used as a party decoration (or party supply) for an AUTUMN PARTY!!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT FALLING LEAVES, CRISP EVENINGS, AND AUTUMN HARVEST with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!  

This is a flameless candle that I took and altered using some stamped leaves 
and some card stock with some embossing using the "NEW" Woodgrain Emboss 
Folder which you can order HERE.  I used the following ink pads to create the color on 
all the leaves: Soft Suede, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, So Saffron and Early Espresso
  I took some Chocolate Chip card stock which measured 10" X 4-1/2" and 
embossed and then sponged with some Early Espresso over the raised embossing.
Here is the candle on which will make a fantastic addition to my home!
