Birthday Candles

It's always a challenge for me to make birthday cards for the guys on my team at work. I mean really... I can't use pretty ribbons, or flowers, or anything like that. So, knowing I have a few of those birthday's coming up, I figured I better get a head start.

I used October Afternoon paper (Campfire line) and paired it with various colored cardstock. Stars are safe for guys, right?

The candles (Birthday Bracket set by Stampendous) are colored with Copic markers and the dots and stripes are glittered. A guy can handle a little glitter for pete's sake.

The little pennant banner (Taylored Expressions) brought the stars to the top of the card and the top 3/4 of the yellow panel is dry embossed with polka dots (PTI impression plate)

One down... a few more to go. I better get busy!
