Happy cake and candle day

I find clean and simple (CAS) some of the hardest cards to make! I tend to not stay clean and I complicate instead of simplify :P
I found four challenges at Paper Playful to combine and work on this morning:
Sketch Saturday #394: See sketch photo below:
Just Us Girls #325: something Metal
Fantasy Stampers: Happy Birthday
 
I tried stamping the candles directly on the blue card stock and adding orange stickles and I made a huge mess ~ so I cut them off and added the blue piece to white card stock and stamped new candles to dance across the top that I colored with orange marker instead.  The metal accents are brads and I used washi tape for accent.  The sentiment is by Cornish Heritage Farms and the set is called "Birthday Centers".

Great birthday card, I love the dancing candles. I struggle with CAS cards too, white spaces made me nervous.
