Birthday Wish

TGIF!!!  I wish everyone a wonderful Friday!  It is snowy and cold here in Montreal, but absolutely beautiful!
I made a birthday card to share with you today.  You can never have too many birthday cards sitting around!!
I had a little trouble getting this card all together...I was using the sketch design at Mojo Mondays challenge blog:
But once I got the candles cut out, I realized they were too big for a portrait oriented card...so I had to flip it to landscape and that ended up changing a bit of the layout...but I think I followed the sketch pretty closely...just instead of circles look for squares :)
I embossed half of the green backing with my Swiss Dots folder and then inked it a little with a dark green ink.  All of the frames are cut from my favorite Cricut cartridge-Lacy Labels!  The candles are cut from the cartridge Birthday Bash that I got for Christmas from my wonderful mother-in-law (turns out we gave each other the same gift...lol!)
I had embossed the lower corner of the blue paper with a Celebrate folder, but it didn't turn out as nicely as I wanted it to...hard to see in the picture.  The sentiment is a digi stamp from my collection.  I thought it worked pretty good as a "tag" under the ribbon.
This card is entered in the following challenges:
    Mojo Monday Sketch #223
    Fantabulous Cricut #93-Man Time
    Charisma Cardz #1-Happy Birthday
    Birthday Sundaes #38-Birthday Card

Thanks for stopping by!!!
