Mermaid Lover's Birthday

"I love the glitter", "Did you make the candle?!" & "I love it anyway" where the responses to this card & my bought candle. I had to promise to make a candle sometime soon, even though I've not made one in twenty years!

Going Buggy's March Challenge is to 'use something on your card that wasn't intended for cardmaking'.  So many things are now used on cards that I found it difficult to think of something suitable.  I found some old wrapping paper (hence the designer creases!) that I thought would go perfectly with  A Day For Daisies' Birthday Mermaid & their "found paper" challenge, but was that enough?

I kept looking until I saw the No. 6 birthday candle.  


Just right for the card & the cake.

The Polycraft Monday Challenge is Water, Water, Everywhere! A few forum friends have made lovely water wave cards & | really wanted to have a go. I used a scallop punch & the folded wrapping paper to make the waves. I love how the paper reflects the light (even on a dull day outside) & it's satisfying using the negative bits of the scallop punch.

I almost made the optional extra monotone theme on Papertake Weekly Challenge Anything Goes, but couldn't resist the orange balloons & the candle didn't have a turquoise trim.

April birthdays are great & Aoife agrees!

Cards Galore celebrated their first birthday on the 4th of April, Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy your big birthday bash this month.
