Birthday Candles

Thank you House Mouse Design Team for continuing to give us beautiful work for inspiration on the weekly challenges. Go look for yourself and join in. This week's challenge is easy -- make a Birthday themed card. I used just part of a stamp (Jalapeno Peppers) to create my birthday card with an extra stamping of the tail and candle at the mouse's feet cut out and applied to the top layer -- a red panel raised with foam mounts. Crystal lacquer makes the candles shine on the birthday person with birthday wishes from Stampendous. Background "tapestry" is stamped with an All Night Media stamp and Memories Brown ink pad all atop a shiney black 51/2 x 5 1/2 card face. My son will be disappointed that I've not been able to come up with something corny for this posting but when I do, I am sure it won't hold a candle to what he will think. Thanks for stopping by, please tell me what you think.
