Light the new from the old

Get Pushed Challenge #595
My partner gave the challenge of using a flash. I only have the flash that is in my camera. I did a little research and attempted to diffuse the flash to get this photo.
@kali66 Thank you for the challenge. This is the best I could come up with.

@haskar Thank you Hannah.
@pyrrhula Thank you Ferry. I don't light candles like I used to. I'm afraid I'll go off and forget them and burn the house down.
@shutterbug49 Thank you Debbie. I used the incandescent white balance and bluish white lights in the background.
@olivetreeann Thank you Ann. You are so kind.
@mcsiegle Thank you Mary. It was dark when I took the photo and the background and base were black. The lights in the background provided some light and the diffused flash provided enough to see the candle from the front side without too much harshness.
@amyk Thanks so much Amy.
@tunia Thank you Tunia. I like blue and the incandescent white balance and bluish white lights in the background did the trick.
@bkbinthecity Thank you very much Brain.
@granagringa Thank you. The area is dark, background and underneath the candle was black. The flash gave enough light so that the candle could be seen and the paper diffused the light from the flash enough that it wasn't harsh.
@farmreporter Thank you Wendy. Yikes! GP challenge already so soon! Thank you for your challenge. I'll get you one by tomorrow.
