Really cute card Barbara. I love how you allowed the tops of the candles to be seen by adjusting where you put the rectangle. It proves that a little creative altering of a sketch goes a long way. Thanks for playing!

Oh, how I love shades of browns/teals/reds together--have been using them for a few years and still a favorite. They just pop! Great job, this will be a fun birthday card to send and receive! Wonderful use of the patterned paper too. Way to go!
