One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday

No added toppings this time around...just a good birthday card!  I pulled out my candles from Wishes come True and stamped an assortment of colors for the candles.  I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire HERE  doing a similar technique with letter stickers...I die cut the 'birthday' from PTI's trio of birthday's with masking paper and laid it down on the card, then I proceeded to stamp the candles close to each other....when I was all done, I peeled off the masking paper and VOILA...the word "birthday" is clearly seen!  I stamped the flame and then used a copics at the bottom to give a little more color, then I added some glossy accents over it!

I hope you will join the rest of the team and be inspired to make a birthday sure to link it up

And can I just give a great big Happy Birthday greeting to JoAnn on our design team?
I wish you the happiest of day filled with lots of good friends, family, LOVE  and of course Cake!

Come join the team with another Birthday Card...NO Toppings required!
