More Candles

I made this card for my Aunt’s 79th birthday tomorrow. I hope I can drop in to see her tomorrow night with a little treat (she has a sweet tooth). The card also satisfies today’s Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC72) as well as the Creative Belli Blog Challenge #90 (CBC90) to make a birthday card. The Belli Challenge also called for us to use some old stuff. I’ve had these grayish flowers for about 5 years and I have never used them until now. I was also able to use this patterned paper that was in the middle of a “Take Ten” magazine a few years ago. Gotta love that. I flipped the sentiment panel over to the other side so I wouldn’t hide some of the patterned paper. I was just going to leave the swirls alone. I’m not really sure why I felt I needed to add the prima flowers and self-adhesive half pears. Anyway, here is the recipe:
Card Base – Papertrey Ink. White CS
Next layer – SU Bordering Blue (gotta admit I’m glad this one is retiring)
Next layer – patterned paper and light yellow (on bottom)
Stamps – SU
Ink – Navy Blue StazOn
Accessories – SU Punches/Die & MS border punch , Navy Satin Ribbon, Large half pearl – SU Pretties kit & smaller half pearls from the dollar store

Well, that’s it for now. I have recently placed some orders for Spellbinder’s pendants, borders and nesties as well as some new copic markers. I can’t wait to get all of my new goodies so I can expand my stamping style a little. I plan to get lots of inspiration from all of you awesome stampers!
