Birthday Candles...


This week's theme over on the Less is More Challenge Blog is to make a card for a child.  Couldn't let this one pass me by, I could do with some cards for children in my stash.

I took a few supplies out to a shady spot in the garden yesterday afternoon. and came up with this design.
It's another scrap buster card from me.  I didn't cut into one full sheet of 6 x 6 to make it.  They're the kinda cards I love.
The card base is 150 mm x 150 mm, the candles are around 15mm wide and I've used a 1" circle punch to make the candle flames.
