Bigger the Wish

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I'm popping in today to share a birthday card! GASP! I know its NOT a Christmas card!! Kind of took a little break away from the Christmas cards!

I decided to play with The Alley Way Stamps new More Then Words stamp set! I really liked the one sentiment 'The More Candles the Bigger the Wish.' There are a couple older TAWS sets with candles that would go great with the sentiment.


I stamped the candles from Tag Alongs and Wish Big on different pattern papers. I cut out just the stems of the candles. Next i stamped the candles on white card stock. I colored the flames with distress markers, cut them out and then added the pattern paper stems.

I placed the candles on my white card base but i thought it still needed something. I pulled out the tiny dot cluster from With Wondering Awe and with a light grey ink i stamped a background on my card base.

Last i added the candles with foam dots and then stamped the sentiment below the candles. Oh and i rounded the corners as a final touch!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
