Today I am featuring lots of different Distress Inks on my card. 
This challenge was perfectly timed for me as it's my daughters partners birthday today so I needed a masculine card to give to him.

I used Simon Says Stamp Triangle Blast stencil to create my background & I lightly blended Scattered StrawBundled Sage & Broken China distress inks over part of the stencil, focusing mainly on the middle section of my card.

I tore my pieces of ink blended card to reveal the white core of the card stock & them rolled and glued them into the shape of candles. I stamped a sentiment from Simon's It's Your Birthday stamp set & then attached my paper candles to my card. I added a small piece of May Arts Twine inside each of my paper candles & randomly added some Duck Egg Blue, Bottle Green & Buttermilk Crystal Drops & a few Sea Breeze Jewel Drops around the candles.
