Seize the Birthday #254

Yay for me!  I'm playing at Seize the Birthday again.  I seem to forget this wonderful challenge when I'm making my numerous birthday cards.  I'm even using the topping - candles.  Yes, I must use the topping.

I've seen cards lately using the Happy Birthday embossing folder and decided I would make a few cards with it.  The candles are from Altenew, made with scraps from my stash.  No other sentiment needed.  While I had everything out I made one with a more masculine color palette.

You'll be seeing this folder again with other ideas I have.  I make so many floral cards that I have to start branching out for my men and children. 

Thanks for dropping by.

  4. I have this folder and I'm not sure that I've ever used it. Love it with the candles and how well it works for the guys! I need to get this folder out and use it. Thanks for the inspiration, my friend.

  8. I am in LOVE with those candles. I must try and find them over at Altenew. Love your design, especially with the white embossed background. I have that EF and don't use it enough. Fabulous design here.
