Color Inspired Birthday

As you can see from the time of this post I can't sleep. So why not stamp, right? I thought it was a perfect time to work on the color inspiration over on Kristina Werner's blog. I love these colors: Old Olive, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White. I don't typically use so many colors at once. I usually stick to 3, so 5 was a bit of a challenge for me. This was actually my second take on the challenge. I was not too pleased with how the first one turned out. I used Life's a Breeze on that one. But I knew I couldn't go wrong with Big Birthday candle.

I stamped the stars from Classic Backgrounds in Bashful Blue on Whisper White. Then I stamped the outline of the candle in Not Quite Navy and cut it out. I then stamped the circles in Not Quite Navy on Whisper White and the candle outline. I colored the circles in with my Old Olive marker and cut it out. I stamped the flames in So Saffron and then the flame outlines in Not Quite Navy and cut them out. I adhered my candles and flames on a piece of Bashful Blue. I stamped my sentiment in Not Quite Navy on a piece of Whisper White and attached it to my candles like a Levi tag. I cut a small slit in the fold of my card to insert my ribbon through. I tied a knot in my Old Olive Polytwill ribbon. I layered my candles over the ribbon. I probably should've stopped there, but I really wanted to use some glitter. So, I put two silver brads up in the top corner, added a glue dot to each one and sprinkled some Fine Cosmo glitter on them.

I think it turned out cute! I love this stamp set!!!
