  2. Hi Sybrina! As I said over on FB, I love your card! What a great idea for making the "frosting" and I love text on each candle. It goes so well with that BoBunny DP; that's one of my favorite collections, too! I really enjoyed your video; I'm delighted to be on the CIE design team now with you!

  3. I love the concept of this card with the text in the candles, so fun and original!

  4. That cake and those candles are so creative! Congrats on new blog launch too!
