Sketchbook Saturday and a Tea Light Cake

I used this week's Sketchbook Saturday sketch for a simple fall card using this week's Dynamic Duo colour combo.  While I had the papers on my desk, I decided to make a tiny matching birthday cake using a battery operated tea light.  If you're a Pinterest regular, you may have seen the idea floating around recently - and when I saw a package of the little lights at Costco, I had to give it a try.  It only took a short while to make, and will definitely make my girlfriend smile when I give it to her :o)
 
Patterned papers are Lucky & Dotty For You; Cardstock is Kraft & Colonial White; Ink is Desert Sand; Stampset is Say It in Style; Cricut Artiste cartridge; Sunset Baker's Twine, ribbon and Button - all supplies are CTMH.

What a fabulous card! I love the papers you used. That bubble paper from Lucky is still one of my favorite patterns. I can't part with the tiniest scrap from it. LOL
