Happy birthday!

They say it's my birthday!  Yep, they're right!  So I made myself a card...nah, this one is for my aunt who turns 90 in a few weeks.  I saw the inspiration card in a recent Papercrafts magazine.

I used whitewashed core'dinations paper but embossed (Provocraft - Number Collage) the solid side.  Sigh.  So I drew around the numbers with a white Sharpie.  The candles were cut from corrugated cardboard, painted white, then inked up with distress ink.  The flames were smeared with some yellow glimmer spray.  Tim's new stamp set, Simple Sayings, (love this!!!) provided the label and phrase. A bit of crinkle ribbon was dropped into some Spun Sugar distress stain and tied into a bow.  Ta da!
