You're How Old?

I made this card for my great-nephew's 17th birthday and am entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and the AAA Birthday 'Anything Birthday Goes' challenge.  All the card is from my snippets box so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

7" x 5" white matt card blank
Woodware 'Numbers' stamp
Tattered Lace 'Mini Candle' die
Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
Snippets of blue, brown, green, red and turquoise texture card, brown, yellow and white matt card

I die cut 17 candles from blue, brown, green, red and turquoise card and attached them to white card and then die cut 17 yellow flames which were inlaid into the candles.  I trimmed the panel and stamped the sentiment below the candles.  The panel was layered onto brown card before being attached to the card blank.

These candles and the very apt sentiment look great on this card Kath, and will bring an instant smile when the envelope is opened, and love all the colours too. x

I love this fantastic card and the super die that you've used for it too. A great way to use up those small scraps too.
