Seize the Birthday - Candles

It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday.  

 Our "Topping" option this time around is...
"Candles"

 Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!
If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!
 
Here is my example for you.  Candles are a great option for a birthday card. 
 I made this birthday card for a friend that makes beautiful flower cards.  So I tried to add flowers to this card to impress her.  I hope that she finds this interesting.  
You will be surprised at the dies that I used to create this card. The candles are the post box post from Die-namics, Mailbox.  The flames are really leaves from the Lily set.  See how you can make your dies go farther?  The three panels in the background were heat embossed with white using the Circle Doodle stamp and water colored with Metalic inks.  All of these were placed on a base of Turquoise Sea from Gina K.  The flowers on the bottom are Stampin Up Botanical Builder.  The sentiment is Simon Says It's Your Birthday. 

Please leave a nice comment for our Surprise guest for January and February, Kristie Goulet https://kreativekristies.blogspot.com

 See what the design team has done for your inspiration

  1. She found it beautiful. so fun to hear how you improvised. I would need a lot less dies if I had half your ability to innovate. That embossed background is soo gorgeous. I am going to need a bit more direction on how to do that.
