This almost similar to something I'm gonna do for my grandma. It was her birthday and I'm gonna make her a candle, composition book, accordian birthday card, magnet all using the Love w/o End stamp set. It's one of my favorite sets.
I love the colors and the beads on the candle. How did you get the stamps on the candle?

Thanks for all the awesome comments! We've done this workshop twice and it's been a big hit. My side-line is a "candle guru" - I let her teach that!!! LOL. We cut tissue the exact dimension to fit around the candle (cheap stuff from Big Lots)...then we stamped on it (you have to practice with the black ink - too much spreads). Then wrap the tissue around the candle and hold with wax paper (we use the kind you get at Smart'n'Final - already in pieces. Tanya says it is thicker and works best) and heat withthe heat gun. Keep it moving. Do half, then move the wax paper around and do the other half. They come out really smooth! The other option is to crumple the tissue first, then smooth is back out. Candle ends up with a textured appearance - easier that way :) HTH
