New recipe and new card

First the recipe - Shepherd's Pie
I prepared the meat and potatoes yesterday so only had to assemble and bake after church today. So easy!

It was warm and yummy - and very little mess in the kitchen. This one is a keeper.

Now the card -

A friend saw a card similar to this on Pinterest and wanted to know if I could make one. She wanted to give it to a friend on her 80th birthday and use $10, $20 and $50 bills for the candles. I think it is a great idea.
The card is Sahara Sand with some Paisley Petals designer series paper. The candle flames are from So Saffron card stock punched with the Bird Punch then sponged with Tangerine Tango and Peach Parfait. The candle wicks are the white baker's twine.
I cut a few dimensionals in half and placed them in a line where the candles will be added. That way the bills can be adhered easily but can also be removed without tearing the card or the money.
Isn't this a cute idea? You could use it for almost any birthday - if you can't come up with a combination of bills to equal the recipient's age, just put on whatever amount you want to give them (three 10s, 5s, 20s, or any combination). I'm sure the person receiving it will love it!
