Masculine sponged candle card

My second post of the day, earlier one was a feminine card and this one is a masculine card.
Wanted to use only one embellishment as stated by Paper crafting challenge. There is still plenty of time to play, see details here.
A shimmery black card stock, sponged a candle and flame. added some chain stitches on the candle. the thread I chose is a shaded dark and light blue thread. A heart embellishment.

Playing a 'I spy" game here, the stamped words are clearly visible, but I just couldn't manage a better picture, so many of you might be guessing here - says "awesome, nice,smart, good looking, all round terrific". Could have stamped directly under the birthday, but I like it this way.

Only one embellishment used.

I was inspired by the colors in the picture, the checkered shirt too.

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
