Candle Ellie

Hello lovely people,

Woohooo! It's the weekend again and I hope you all have lovely things planned.
I will be crafting and catching up with friends :-)

Today I am sharing another card for The Paper Nest Dolls and no surprises I have gone for a pretty girly design!

Girly birthday card featuring girl with candle (image from Paper Nest Dolls)

I have used a fairly new image that I instantly fell in love with when I saw it.

Just don't get me started on the health and safety issues here...candle...hair...just saying - lol!

On a positive note, if that's the size of the candle, how big must the cake be?!

So pretty Kat. I love the layers, beautiful colouring and your signature stitching. That's funny about the candle and hair... I just saw a video on Facebook where the stylist cut the hair with swords and then burned the ends... I got the shivers when he burned the ends. And who wants the smell of burning hair around them...

Hehe, you made me laugh Kat! I still have nightmares about a night my hair caught on fire in a nightclub that had candles all over the place. Thank goodness for my hero hubby, who put out the flames that were climbing up my back with his bare hand! Knee jerk reaction, and it killed the flames instantly. Thank heavens he wasn't burnt, but oh my goodness the smell of my hair! Urrghh! So glad your gorgeous girlie is holding the flame above her hair! Beautiful card Kat, love the papers and gorgeous card design. I do love that sweet Magnolia border die, a beautiful finishing touch. Gorgeous blooms too. Hugs, Wends x
