Thankfully, the snow has all gone ...

... so I don't mind seeing it on cards. The background paper is an offcut of DCWV paper, with an embossed panel created with a snowflake embossing border folder on a snippet of white card brushed with stormy sky distress ink, with some sticky ribbon either side. The image is one that I stamped and glittered a long, long time ago - I got the stamp in a 'pass it on' challenge at the time and stamped so many of them and this is a stray one that didn't get used.

This is for:

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!
