Birthday Candles


Hi everyone.  Today there's a birthday party happening over at Addicted to Stamps & More.  It's the 2nd birthday of this wonderful challenge blog --- congrats to Kylie and the DT!  They have a new challenge starting today (#100 - Photo Inspiration), with lots of prizes.  Come join in the fun! :)




And there's also a party happening at CAS-ology - ya-whoo!  ...  to celebrate their 100th challenge.  The cue card is Celebrate.  What better way to celebrate than with some birthday candles :)




I know it's the 2nd birthday, but had to go with the rule of odd numbers looks better, so I included three candles :)

I used several pieces of rainbow-striped washi tape placed on a diagonal on white card stock and then ran it through my Cameo to cut out the candles.  The flames have a coating of Wink of Stella to give them shine.  I used one of my favorite new stamps sets from Clearly Besotted called "A Little Sentimental" ... I've been using it A LOT lately - love the font - simple and clean ... and there's lots of words in the set.







Stamps:  A Little Sentimental (Clearly Besotted)
Paper:  110 lb. white (Neenah); Smoky Slake, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie (SU!)
Ink:  Black (Memento)
Accessories & Tools:  Rainbow Washi Tape, Silhouette Cameo, candles cut file, wink of stella pen



Challenges:
ATS&M #100
CAS-ology #100
