Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Birthday Candles

What a crazy couple of weeks! I can't believe (okay, yes I can) I haven't done any posts in two weeks! First, my two year old slipped on a chair and split his chin open on the granite counter - 3 hours in the ER and 6 stitches. Then it was "Mom, I need a dress and stuff for Homecoming next week". Fourteen stores in one day is exhausting. Especially, when we come back empty handed. Needless to say, we did eventually get a dress (overnighted from Bergners online), shoes, purse, etc.,  as well as all of the other items she needed for dress-up days. Now, I have one week to get organized before I have my gall bladder out. I am actually looking forward to a little "rest" and no driving:-)

This week's challenge is all about birthday celebrations using candles. Makeas made using the Birthday Bash and Blast Off cartridges. I created my own card base by welding the candle cut and cutting off the wick/flame part. The orange flame and melted "wax" was embossed with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirl folder while the yellow part of the flame was embossed with their Swiss Dots folder. I replaced the paper wick with a piece of white chenille stems (I thought they were called pipe cleaners - is that a Midwest thing?). I "squiggled" it and adhered it between the cuts on the back portion of the card. The inside is stamped with a sentiment from Stampin' Up's Afterthoughts set.
