For my first card, I added some depth to the candles by 'feathering' the bases with copic markers.
For the second card, I used my candle border punch. In my original vision of this card, I did not end up with the thickness of 6 layers of coloured card stock on the front, but then real life kicked in and man, does this card have (unintentional) dimension! I do like the concentration of colour and overall, I think I prefer this one.
For my next post, a real "What was I thinking?!" and re-do for the challenge at damasklove's blog.
