Stamps: Spread the Light
Designer Paper: My Mind's Eye Mademoiselle, Vellum
Ink: Color Box Frost White Pigment Ink
Accessories: Spellbinder's Floral Doily Accents, Classic Circles Petite, Prima Flowers, Martha Stewart ribbon, Martha Stewart Bough Punch, Pearls (a gift from a sweet friend)

Here is the set together:

Blessing-to-me-2-gift-set

Here is a recap of the card details:
Card Stock: Mark's Finest Papers, designer paper:  My Mind's Eye Madamoiselle.
 Ink: SU! Baja Breeze
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Italian Doily, Fanciful Flourish, Anastasia Border, Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents, Classic Circles Large,   pearls and larger flowers were a gift from a sweet friend.  The smaller flowers are Prima, and I sponged them lightly with baja breeze.

Grace,
This is lovely. I like the idea of the card and luminaria matching. Ultra-feminine touches and your use of vellum is classy. I have lots of vellum (I lost it then found it!!)I'll have to consider this since I love making candles too. And MME paper is my all time favorite.
