a birthday wish

Hi there!!
Hope you are having a great day today!!!

WOW!!! Today is the last Tuesday of the month. This month flew by and so has the year so far. 
I have an inspiration card to share with you for  Craft-Dee BowZ.

I saw a card on Pinterest that is similar to my design below, so it became my inspiration.

Let me share my card with you.

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. 
I wanted to keep this card kind of simple.
I left a bit of extra room at the bottom of the card for my bow to be placed.

Here are some measurements and other info

I used a pinked circle for the center opening of the panel 
and used a striped DP placed diagonally for the circle background. 
I added a slightly larger pinked circle border, I felt I needed to break up some of that white. 
My candles are cut at 7/16" wide and I decided to use pastel colors.

I made the flames from a small egg-shaped punch. 

I added a sentiment to a banner shape that I hand cut and added it right above the bow.

My bow - it's just a double stacked single looped bow. I think this is more of a fancy yet simple look. OK, is that a dichotomy description or what LOL.

Here is a close-up view of my bow. 

I used some pink sheer ribbon and it was perfect for this cute card.

Stamps: Sentiment - MayMay Made it - From All of us
Paper/Card Stock
: Purple CS White CS, Yellow CS, Blue CS, Green CS, Pink CS, DP
Ink: Black Versafine
