Default Challenge: ideas for a card with this sentiment.

DH just got a birthday card with a sentiment I must steal. It says:
(Front) Birthdays aren't so hard to take...
(inside) It's the HEAT
That all those candles make!

I would really like some cute ideas to go with the card.

There is also a Chicken stamp by Penny Black that would work well. Go to www.addictedtorubberstamps.com and search for "chicken" and it will pull it up!

Hi!
This is too funny. I just received my last (at least for this year) order from Sizzix. I only bought 5 dies this time, LOL!!

Anyway, I bought the candle die. I want to use the candles on cards and especially in a row on gift bags. This sentiment would be perfect for the dies. And I also have some candle stamps from a few retired sets so I can use this sentiment in lots of different ways.

Thanks

Ok you sucked me in with the challenge...hehe. I have the Penny Black stamp with chickens and a fire extinguisher called Best of Luck that would be perfect.
