best wishes

I missed a challenge deadline. Again. By the time I thought about what I wanted to do with A Blog Named Hero's second challenge--Topsy Turvy--the deadline came and passed.
My brain works slow sometimes.

The challenge was to use a sentiment in a way other than as a sentiment. Here is my card.





And a closer look at the candle flames. I used a very old Tsukineko Dauber Duo (remember those?) with both a Marigold and Canary dauber. Some Rock Candy Distress Stickles were added for a bit of a glow. Love that stuff!


I'll be entering this card in Hero Arts May challenge which has a birthday theme. Perfect. And I'm not late!

Thanks for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
