Put Another Candle On Your Birthday Cake

Hello bloggers!  I want to wish my dear friend Julia Watts a very Happy Birthday today, so I thought this would be an appropriate card for today's offering!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and used the Elemental Swirl stamp and randomly stamped it using a Clear Perfect Medium pad.  I used clear embossing powder and heated it to melt.  Next I used the Pearl Green Opal Polish over the top.  You can see the swirls below as a resist.  I cut the backing piece for the Another Candle All In One image out of Powdered Pink card.  I cut the actual Cake die out of white card, then cut three small silver pieces to put behind the flowers before gluing it on to the backing piece.  I paper pieced the words "put another" in silver.  I added glue to the candle tips and sprinkled them with Iced Snow.  The card was completed with powder pink and white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  7 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

I don’t think there is anyone in the industry who creates sentiments like you. You bring phrases together to create focal points which adds so much interest to the card.
