Candle, dino and dies

Hello everybody,

I was looking through my CDRoms yesterday and found this lovely image.
 As it is my mums 50th birthday later this year, I thought this would make a sweet birthday card. The pearlescent cardstock was pre-embossed, and the image was from a Crafters Inspiration CDRom, which I coloured with promarkers and then die-cut in the shape of a heart. I finished the card with a birthday cupcake, however I do not own a cake die of any sort - so I used a plant pot and ice cream top from my Quick Cutz dies and layered the elements into a cupcake with candle :) The patterned background is a Dreemees background.
I wouldlike to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon says monday Love is in the air (love hearts)
CASology 182 Adore (love hearts)
Die Cuttin' Divas #250 Chocolate cake day
CCM #156 Punches or dies
Digi Chooseday #4 In Bloom
Hanna and Friends #240 Die-cuts
The Stamping Boutique Die-cuts or punches

Th technique in focus over on my facebook group is Candle Making this month - so I gave it a go. I did try to use food colouring to colour the candle as I forgot to get wax crayons, but it didn't work, so I have a white Ylang-Ylang candle lol. The instruction video can be found in the group.

I also need to decorate the jar, but I am going to try this one out and then maybe make some for my wedding if they work well :)

At the weekend I did manage to get down to the allotment briefly and edge one of my beds - this one has rock salts incorporated into it, and I will also add a layer of compost to raise the level of the bed.

Finally here is an update on my dino height chart - now at 52 hours:

Thank you for looking
