Happy Birthday (3)...

 Outlining the matting and flames in black really makes them pop....

 These are great colours for a guy or girl....

 I used an flower stamp to create the radiant glow from the candle...

I hand drew the flame and fussy cut the inside of each flame from corresponding cardstock...

I added some glitter to the flower and flame and some glossing accents to the orange part of the flame..

I wanted to show a friend of mine how easy it is to create a handmade card with very few supplies..she is intimidated with anything crafty and I think she is missing out on a lot of fun...!!

Products used:
The candles are simply an old border stamp that I have loosely stored in a border stamp folder 
Cardstock is all from my scrap stash
Glitter Pen - Gelly Roll - Clear
Glossy Accents - Ranger 
Happy Birthday Stamp - Anita`s Stamp ( there is no name or identification on this stamp, sorry)
Versamark Embossing Ink 
American Crafts - Zing - Opaque Black Embossing Powder
