CAS-ual Fridays Back in Black Challenge

Hi Everyone!

This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge is to create a Clean and Simple card using a black card base.  I need a birthday card and decided to create one that I can submit to the challenge.  I used a scalloped oval Nestability die to cut some "frosting".  I adhered the frosting to my black card base. 

I cut some candles from scraps and spread Glossy Accents all over them to make them look like waxy candles.  I am disappointed that you cannot see how shiny they look.  When the Glossy Accents dried I used foam tape to attach the candles to the card.  I added rhinestone "flames" and rhinestone dots.  Then I wrapped some twine around the edge of the card and tied it in a bow.  The sentiment was created with a Stampabilities wooden rubber stamp.

That's all for today!
