Do you have a color that you just can't let go of? This is mine - Midnight Muse. I wish Stampin' Up! would bring it back. It was definitely one of my favorite In Colors.
Another birthday request...this time for a 40 year old man. I originally envisioned 40 candles on this card, but could only fit 24! Then the greeting covered up quite a few of them anyway, so I just left it at that :-)
Midnight Muse, Marina Mist, Soft Sky, Tip Top Taupe, and Early Espresso are my colors for the candles. The stamp set is Big News. I cropped the 40th out with my Big Shot and framelits that I picked up from the Clearance Rack. It's a very simple layout - quick and easy, with the only time involved was the stamping with the random colors. But fun! I gave the flames a Wink of Stella (cool new glitter pen that comes out in the 2016 Occasions Catalog - Jan. 5th).
And on the inside, one quick stamp, "enjoy the fuss." And that is it! What do you think?
Have a great day!
