Masculine Birthday Card

I made a birthday card that uses the new color "Sky" in combination with Barn Red and Honey. I stamped the candles for the set Candlelight (C1394) in Sky on White Daisy cardstock. The candle flame is Honey with the outline stamp in Barn Red. The Happy Birthday was inked in Sky then I rolled the stamp edges into Barn Red for the two-tone effect. I adhered the black ribbon onto the White Daisy cardstock and then layered onto Black cardstock. All is layered onto a red card base. I used Liquid Glass and followed the swirls on the flames and the candles. I also added LG in the round spaces on the candle with the large dots and tiny dots. I love how the LG gives the Sky a slight shade of green.(That sometimes happens to the ink colors, an unplanned surprise.)
Everything except the red cardbase are from CTMH.
