Happy Birthday 17yo Son

Morning everyone, well today we are celebrating 17 years of our son. :-)  Time goes by so fast when you are having fun.  
I spied the spinner card while googling the other day and thought that was the style of card I would make for him.  I saw this fun card posted by Pixley over at Splitcoast Stampers and decided to have a play.

Dug out my Bazzill card (French Vanilla and Pine Cone).
To make the slot I used my smallest circle spellbinder and cut a circle on each side of the card where I wanted the slot to end.  Then cut out the tab in between the two circles.  Now that I have made the card I would prefer a smaller slot...will have to work on that.  I have used two 20c pieces to create the spinner with the candle flame on it.  The flame I hand drew and coloured with my water colour pencils.
The candles I cut strips from my new Blue Edge Crafts design papers.
I printed the greeting out off the computer and adhered that to the card before adding the spinner section with 3D Foam.

I would like to enter into the following challenges.
