You Brighten My Life

It took me a while to decide how to use this image from Clear Dollar Stamps, I found it quite intimidating! I know its a simple candle but it did. However when I saw the sketch challenge for Clearly Inspired I knew Unity Candle would be perfect. I LOVE these colours together, they're so earthy and calming. Go on over to Clearly Inspired and give challenge #30, the sketch a try.
I've also entered this into:
