Happy Birthday!


Hi friends!  Popping in real quick this afternoon with a card for The Cutting Edge Challenge.  I love Karolyn's card below.


I really wanted to use my city scape die but decided to go in a different direction and use candles.  I added the color to each one by smooshing ink on my craft mat then spraying with water.  Used a paintbrush to apply the ink.  Very fun.

I am also adding this to Virginia View's Challenge & AAA Cards Game #10.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
