Birthday Wishes

I tell ya, trying to find MoJo when half my stuff is packed in boxes is getting real challenging! lol
I accepted a new position in the bank I work for, so until our house sells, I'm living in St. Paul during the week and then back home for the weekends. I brought a limited amount of supplies with me because I just CAN'T not stamp! But, can you imagine what it's like to be in a constant Limited Supply Challenge?

I have a number of birthday's on the calendar in the next month, so I reached for my new Stampendous Birthday Brackets set (Eclectic Paperie has it in stock AND on sale!!!).

I created the scallop border with my corner punch (with the base removed) and layered it with white. The sentiment is stamped directly on the pattern paper and embossed with white detail embossing powder. The little scallop corner is made using a Martha Stewart border punch. I simply placed it over the corner I found the look I wanted, and then trimmed away the excess.

The candles are stamped on white cardstock, colored with Copic markers and accented with glitter. (The green candle really does match the paper in real life! It just looks kinda wonky in the pic.)

Super simple (and FLAT) card, ready to fill with birthday wishes and hugs.

Oh, I have to show you this card. Chris takes care of my husband's bookwork and she sent this to congratulate me on my new job. Isn't it just the CUTEST thing!!! I've never had the pleasure of meeting her in real life, but she's a stamper, and she keeps DH organized so she's TOP SHELF in my book!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
