I have lots of photos to share with you today!

 
I altered a candle holder.  I found it for 25 cents at the local thrift store!

Here is what it looked like to start with.  Just a plain black metal holder.
 
The ribbon I found at Dollarama, it's 4.5" wide.  I used a hot glue gun to attach it in strategic places on the holder, leaving it loose so that the flowers would nest into it.

 
For the part that holds the candle, I used black fun foam to build up the area, and then covered it with the ribbon.  I then attached it to the holder.

 
I used Botanical Rose stamp set, I stamped the image using grey ink onto white cardstock.  I cut them out using the matching Botanical Wings die and coloured them using various Distress Inks.

 The base of the holder is done, now I just have to add flowers to the top. 

I used the Classic Leaf and Open Leaf stamp set and the matching dies for the greenery.  I tuck them in around the flowers.
