Welcome to the last Seize the Birthday challenge for October! (How does that even happen? :D) While we hope you will seize our challenge, you might want to be careful seizing our optional topping... it's CANDLES!
As always, our topping is up to you, we love to see any new birthday creation linked up in our gallery. I had a candle die I'd been, um, burning to try, so this challenge was perfect for me.
I die cut this once from white and once from black as I wanted a dark background as contrast to the coloured candles. You'll notice I left some of them white - this was going to someone turning eleven, so I only coloured eleven. Yes, I sometimes worry about me, too. :D Since the candles are solid-coloured, I thought a striped background panel would be fun to add. An embossed sentiment, some sparkle on the flames, and a strip of black to tie everything in, and I called it done.
Be prepared for lots of birthday candles on the Seize the Birthday blog, from the rest of the design team and our surprise party guest, Annie! it's fun to see how many different ways candles can be used on a card. Candles or no, make a birthday card and come join us!
