Birthday candles

This is a card that I made a couple of weeks ago for my brother's birthday. I was keen to get it in the post, so I forgot to take photos, but he has kindly taken some and emailed so I can now show the card. It was a special birthday, which explains the number of candles - and there was an appropriate message inside. I used a Docrafts candles tamp, masking off some of them to stamp the middle ones, colouring them with copics. The sentiment background paper was some I've had for a long time. The card is an 8 x 8 because I needed lots of room for all the candles!

This is for:
