This is "Man Cake" from Delicious Doodles - the candle is from an image called "Dancing Candles" by The Artful Stamper - after coloring the images, I fancy cut the candle, sculpted it from the back and mounted it on foam tape for added dimension.  I then made a slit at the top of the cake and inserted the candle.  I had punched a circle in the image panel and taped DP behind the panel to provide "glow" for my flame.

IMAGES:  The focal image is "Man Cake" from Delicious Doodles; "Dancing Candles" is by The Artful Stamper
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from Basic Grey - "Life of the Party" Paper Pad; base CS is Georgia Pacific
EMBELLISHMENTS:  Circle punch used behind flame and DP taped to back;  Blue ribbon from stash.
INKS: The image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

May you color with abandon, create wildly
and always, always, make what amuses you!
