For CAS(e) this Sketch and CAS(ual) Friday

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is my card for CAS(e) this Sketch and I will also enter it in CAS(ual) Friday.
I have had these Sizzix die cut candles using a cake box for something like over five years. I wrapped embroidery floss over the candles for added interest and slapped them on a card. Never mind how tedious it was to wrap that yarn and ensure it did not peep out from either end. The sentiment is handwritten and it took me forever to get it right as I tried black ink to write it the first time but it looked odd. Finally had to settle for this blue and am not quite sure how it looks. 



I will also enter this card in:

Wish you a happy weekend.

Love,

Monica

Monica, this birthday card is so very cool and not gender specific! I'm always looking for non-floral ideas. TFS!
