Try Stamping on Tuesday!

Welcome to our Tuesday challenge.  This week I am trying to make a few cards with the new Sketched Birthday Set.  Yesterday's card used it and today's too!

I so love this new Crisp Cantaloupe color.  Mixed with the Early Espresso makes such a soft but elegant card.  I have fun with the SoHo Subway paper.  The pattern on the top is the other side of the candles I made.  I just rolled a pieces of the dp tightly and added a bit of baker's twine for the wicks.  Fun card.  I wanted to make the candles from money but had no-one in particular to give the card to and didn't want the money just sitting there for like--ever like some of the cards I make, lol! 

Come on over and play along with the rest of the Design team on Try Stamping on Tuesday's blog

Love this card. I was wondering how I could use this DSP pattern. It looks fabulous with this layout and stamp set. Great work!
