Birthday Card and Candle Made to Order

This was a card that was made to order for a friend's Dad's 60th. And of course all net proceeds went in to my charity pot!
Thank you for your order Claire!

She also ordered a candle too, which is why I have included it in this post!

As always, click on them to view in full. I totally <3 my new camera!

The finished card.

Inside with matching panelling, with the candle.

And a super close up of the candle.
