16 Candles

Well, not really, there's only two on the card but you get the idea.  Today's card was inspired by the Sketch with a Twist Challenge on Speedy TV but I changed it up a bit.  I included the sentiment on the "ribbon" rather than separately below the candles.  It would have been too crowded otherwise.  I used some left over denim from a birthday banner I had made for the banner in the card.  The sentiment and small cupcakes are from some rub-ons that were given to me.  I wish I had been able to space them out better.  I figured out after I started I needed to cut out the rub-ons so that the others didn't smear.  Grrr.  Live and learn.  The nice thing about experimental birthday cards like this is I go through a ton of them with my two little boys' friends and little kids are not fussy.  Of course they often don't even look at the card so it can be a mixed blessing.

Speedy TV's Sketch with a Twist
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Birthday Photo Inspiration (The cupcake pops)
