Hope your Birthday is Awesome!

Good day to all my bloggy friends.
I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend.
A quick update......
I returned on Tuesday from training and on my way home, waiting for the train, I slipped and although I did not fall I happened to pull a muscle on my right side of my neck. 
The following day the pain increased so I did follow up with my general doctor, which he prescribed muscle relaxers. I am feeling much better now but I am taking it a little bit slow. 
I miss crafting so since I was home all day yesterday I decided to make a birthday card for a friend. I've had the Easel Cake card file by My Scrap Chick for a while now and as I was reviewing/cleaning up my files I found it. I absolutely love it!! It was so much fun to make!!
As you can see I went with a variation of the color purple.
For some texture, I used Bazzill Dainty Dots Bright cardstock. 
As I was going through my scrap box I found a piece the flower paper from Recollections. 
On the candles I used glossy accents. Both of my birthday sentiments are from Birthday Wishes and the pretty butterflies are from Jar Full of Flowers both from My Craft Spot (unfortunately the company closed). For a touch of sparkle, I used glitter glue on the edges of the butterflies and sprinkles dew drops (purple & yellow) from The Robin's Nest.

  20. So sorry to hear about the pulled muscles, and glad you are feeling a bit better. Wow, this is such a fun look on this birthday card. Just love those candles on the cake and the gleam of the flames. Wonderful happy colors with the lavender colorway, and the easel shape added so much interest. Love the floral dp. Take care, thanks for your visit, and continue to mend. Hugs
