Hello! Yes, I'm back. I cannot believe how long it's been since I've blogged or made a card. I did get to go away for a few days over the Fourth of July and I've been super busy. Needed a break today to make some cards.

I always seem to need birthday cards. I made this today with a NBUS set, Stamplorations Kathryn's Big Wishes. The candles were colored with distress markers and then covered with clear Wink of Stella. I also added a coat of Glossy Accents to the flames for extra shine. You can see the shine better in this close up.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, Of course, I used my mini MISTI to line everything up. How did I ever stamp before MISTI came along? Well, I did stamp, but mostly crooked. I also added a yellow frame made with one of my stitched rectangles dies. This will go to one of my great-nieces.

I'm entering this card into some challenges:

     Addicted to CAS - Stripes (my candles)
     Seize the Birthday - with toppings - Bold & Bright (colors)
     CASology #206 - Art (rainbow colored candles)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week. Enjoy!

  9. LOL I agree that that little tool comes in awfully handy, especially if your sentiment doesn't stamp good the first time. Love your fun multi-colored candles Pam.
