March 4

Happy Friday!

Before we get to today's eye candy, 
I just want to remind you that there are only 2 days left to apply for the Design Team Call.
You can check out all the details by clicking the graphic above this post.

I will tell you that I was planning to add 3 designers to the team...
until all the wonderful applications started coming in and I had my head in my hands saying 
"this is going to be waaaaaay too hard!"
Then, I remembered I'm the boss! 
If I don't like the rules I can change them! LOL!
So I decided to double it!

I will be adding 6 new designers to the team!!!
Get your applications in right away if you want to be considered :)
I mean really, what do you have to lose besides the time it takes you to send the email??

And now we return to our regular scheduled post...

Hi Folks!
 Kelly here to share a birthday card that you can make with any long, birthday-themed sentiment. 

For this particular card, I stamped the cute "so many candles, so little cake" sentiment from Whole Shebang on several strips of differently colored papers (including some patterned papers). These strips then become your candles! This card would be extra special for an 11th birthday since there are 11 candles, but it would work fine for us older "kids" too : )

The bottom "blow out that bonfire" sentiment is from another birthday set, Shenanigans.

Since I wanted the sentiments to blend in with the papers a little, I chose inks that were similar in color to the paper. It might be a little overwhelming if they were all stamped in black.

Now for the flames, can you guess where these came from?

I'll give you a hint, there are three parts to this image.

It's floral. 

 It's the small floral stamp in the Mon Ami set! I colored it with copics, then fussy cut the three different sections, and added them to the tops of each candle. Candle complete.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks for looking!
