Big Birthday Wishes

Amy here with my Tuesday post for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. To be honest, I came into this week not having a solid plan for today's card which is unusual for me. Normally, I've gotten a new stamp or have a technique I want to play with so I know generally what I'm going to do well in advance. This time though, Monday hit and I still had no idea. So I sat down and started flipping through my stamps until this fun Candle Blowing birthday girl from CC Designs caught my eye. I always love the challenge of coloring candle glow and I decided to make it really dramatic by coloring the background dark grey... like all of the lights have been turned off for the song and celebration. So I did that and was happy with how it turned out but she was looking rather lonely all by herself in that dark room so I grabbed the older Surprise! set and stamped in a couple of fellow party goers. By keeping them in grey tones with only touches of candle glow the birthday girl remains the star of the show. Then I found the perfect sentiment in Jessie's new Happy Birthday to You set from Whimsy to pull it all together. I guess the lesson to take away is that sometimes 'winging it' can lead to fun ideas and results!
There is still time to enter this month's challenge. Kelly has an awesome $20 gift certificate up for grabs and you could be the lucky winner so get to creating and join the fun!
