Think BIG challenge

Nichole's challenge today was to THINK BIG - "to create a project that incorporates something unexpectedly mega-sized!" My idea was to make a birthday card with some gigantic candles on the front.

I cut the flames out free-hand and added some glitter for sparkle. I distressed the edges of both the flames and the candles, in addition to using dimensionals, to make them really pop.

I think this would make a nice masculine birthday card - nothing too girly about it. :)

Stamps: Up, Up & Away (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: dark gray pigment (Studio G)
Paper: Stamper's Select White, Spring Rain, and Lemon Tart (PTI); Kraft (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU); dimensionals (SU); edge distressing tool (Tim Holtz); double edge banner die (PTI)
