Belated birthday candles!

Hi everyone, I hope you have been enjoying the new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
Shirley has chosen the theme this time and it's candles. 

Of course, you can always play along with the anything goes birthday option instead!

Apologies for being late to the party this round. Hopefully life will settle down again for a while so I have time in the craft room!

This is an ancient candle stamp that I forgot I had! Stamped  in Versafine ink, clear embossed, fussycut and coloured with markers.

The diecut sentiment is from one of my remaining reject pieces of glossy photo paper, smooshed in distress oxide inks and wiped with a baby wipe to remove the chalkiness.

Here's a closer look at the shine.

I'm linking up to a few challenges:

Watercooler Wednesday where it's all about occasions.

Work it Wednesday where it's time to celebrate.
AAA Birthday where it's a colour palette, use any 2 of the colours.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where it's fall or autumn colours.

Beautiful card! The candles are adorable and the sentiment is so special. I love that you die cut it from "smooshed" photo paper. We are so pleased that you joined us at Watercooler Wednesday.

Love the colors and the shine on the sentiment and the cute candles. Great card Cathy.
No apologies necessary. We all have our busy times in life. Hope things are settling down for you.

Super impressed with your fussy cutting as those candles have wavy edges! Love the added shimmer on your greeting too! Great card!!! Hope things settle down for you too...card therapy is a requirement for me these days.

Wonderful birthday card, Cathy. Great idea to die cut the sentiment from the glossy photo piece.

This is very pretty Cathy and love the way you have inked the die cut sentiment on photo paper smooshed with a baby glossy, and the candles stamped and coloured perfectly. They stand out so well in black too. x
