Birthday Card and Candle

 This card was made using my house mouse stamp
Coloured with my promarkers
I then cut it out using my Marianne Dies
Which gives a nice lace effect
The sentiment is stamped and is from a See D set
Buttons from stash
Ribbons was some blog candy I was sent and I ruffed it for effect
Papers came for a Docraft Goodie bag
 This box I made the old fashioned way with my craft knife and ruler
Finished it with a ribbon and some flowers

Inside the box is this candle I decorated
using the same House Mouse Stamp and the See D's sentiment
stamped onto white tissue paper
I coloured the image with my promarkers
Then used my heat gun to melt it in to the candle
using greaseproof paper to protect candle
as recommend by fellow bloggers

Thanks to all for the tip

This is for the following challenges


Thanks for Looking
