A Christmas Candle

Hi've no idea what a frustrating morning I had. I decided I wanted to make a House Mouse Christmas candle but couldn't find my white tissue paper anywhere....I turfed out the whole craft room, no sign of it. So I thought I'd have lunch, take the dog for a walk and then have another look....30 seconds after going back in my craft room there was the tissue...on my desk...under my nose all the time!!

Anyhow, here's the result...
This is only the second candle I've ever done so I'm really pleased with it. The ribbon and lace have been fastened on with pins and it's sitting on a spellbinder picot edged circle with twine threaded through.

I would like to enter this for the House Mouse challenge

Thanks for visiting. I'll see you again really soon.
