Big Birthday Candle...

This card was the first chance I've had to use Big Birthday Candle. The main attraction of this stamp set to me is stamping the candle outlines on patterned paper, and it has a couple of word stamps in it. This card was inspired by one found on Dannie's Designs blog.

The polka-dot paper comes from the Cutie Pie designer pack. I used a strip of Purely Pomegranate at the bottom, made into a scalloped edge with Stampin' Up!'s 3/16" corner rounder punch. (SU! is coming out with a scalloped edge punch in the Fall-Winter Catalog that'll punch 1 15/16" at a time!)

The ribbon is blue taffeta, and the yellow is So Saffron. The candle flames are stamped in Basic Gray on Pumpkin Pie card stock. The sentiment comes from the stamp set and is stamped in Purely Pomegranate.
