Freshly Made Sketches #533 and NBUS #38

I have a card today for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.


I recently purchased Make a Wish from Concord and 9th and used the dies to cut the candles in primary colors, layering them three deep and adding alcohol markers to the flames.  I chopped off the bottom of the candles and stamped the sentiment from the same set, based on the sketch below.

I'm also sending this to NBUS #38.  I was a guest designer last month and there is so much great inspiration on that blog.  I hope you'll check it out and share your cards whenever you use "Never Before Used Schtuff".

Thanks for dropping by.
