90 Birthday Celebration

A funny thing happened ...

I made this card for an elderly friend of mine who turned 90 on Monday.  We go to the same library craft group each Wednesday.   She laughed so much when she saw it, because on the Monday (unknown to me)  her daughter had brought around a small birthday cake for her with only 9 candles and when lit, the candles all flared up, melting each other and the icing, and they had difficulty putting them out!

A wonderful card Carol, and great sentiment too! How funny to have chosen that image after her earlier experience with the candles!

Hi - what a great card! Made me laugh. Great image & colours. Good job she didn't have 90 candles on her cake if that's what happened with 9!
Thanks for joining us over at Crafty Calendar this month. Hope to see you again - good luck!
