With Mirth and Laughter

 Here is a bright and colorful birthday card with LOTS of candles!  And this quote from Shakespeare is perfect for it don't you think?  

And I can send this to a friend since I'm also in the 'lots of candles' age group so they can't yell at me!

I inked the candles using a wonderful stencil set from The Greetery, recently purchased, called All Aglow.  The sentiment is from Impression Obsession which is popped up over the candles with foam dots.  Then I splattered the panel with white and black POSCA Pens  and added the orange center flame with a Copic.

I'm joining in with:

What a fun card, sis! You'd need to add candles all over the back and all over the inside of the card, and all over the front and back of the envelope, and then I think that would get us close to my age, haha! The colors and schpeckles are fabulous and why have I never seen that Shakespeare quote before?! I love it! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
