One More #*!#% Candle....

I have a very dear "old" friend who is celebrating her birthday soon and I couldn't resist this wonderful image I just purchased from Bugaboo Stamps during their great New Year's sale! Actually, she and I are about the same age, with me being a few months older! LOL!
Inside reads, "What's one more friggin' candle?"
This was my first card using baker's twine. I've admired it all Christmas, seeing it on everyone's cards. Finally, a scrap buddy gave me some so I can join in the fun! Thanks, Kim! 
I had a very old birthday paper kit and a brand new die cut I just bought from Nestabilities that needed to be broken in, too!
With a little incentive and a card sketch challenge from Polka Doodles, I whipped this up in no time!
This card will also be entered in:
 I Did It- Robyn's Fetish challenge (favorite technique).  In this case, I have to say using my die cut frames has ranked first!
KaboodleDoodle (Anything Goes)
FabnFunky Challenges (Anything Goes) But it IS DT member Andrea's B'day!!!
Woodware USA (Something new)

And for those of you who know me, I  ATTEMPTED to post this for my first time on Splitcoaststampers for the 12 Days Flourish challenge...hey, half the challenge is just learning how to post to these things!
