Big Birthday Candle

Happy Sunday everyone! I am so sorry it has been awhile since my last post. But we have started the spring sports season and it is taking us everywhere! And some places we had not expected to be. We are really excited about Nick's abilities to play sports and we are so thankful that we only have ONE child! I don't know how some people do it with three or more!! Yesterday we had a baseball game and two soccer games! The weather was just beautiful (first time) and I got really burned!! The games were so much fun to watch. I will try to post some pictures sometime (of course, on scrapbook pages!).

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club that meets every other month. I did this card from a sketch that I got from Splitcoast Stampers. I really liked the sketch and thought that this stamp set would really go well with it. I just got this set and was anxious to use it! Something that is hard to see from the photo is that I stamped the outline of the candle and the dots onto a scrap piece of Summer Picnic paper and then cut it out. I also stamped the outline of the flame and cut it out. The candle panel is popped up over the ribbon. I also sponged bashful blue around the blue piece. It's a fun and cheery card! Enjoy!

Card recipe: Stamps- Big Birthday Candle; Paper- Summer Picnic designer paper, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Real Red, Whisper White; Ink- Basic Black, Bashful Blue; Accessories- Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain, dimensionals, sponge
