Birthday Candle Glow

Good evening a quick post from me this evening. 
I recently purchased some images from From The Heart Stamps and saw that they have a fab sketch.
So this is my card using the sketch for the weekly challenge and this fun image called Birthday Candle Bird Brain. This bird just cracks me up.

I have coloured the image with promarkers and Graphit pens.
Used a cuttle bug embossing folder and the Dp is from my stash. Few gems to finish and the sentiment came with the stamp.
