Birthday Challenge


Welcome to day #1 of Blog Candy Week here at Saving My...  Be sure to see the previous post for details and rules.  You could win big!

Today is the beginning of the Birthday challenge over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog!  There is a new challenge every three weeks, and there are prizes.  Here is my DT entry for this theme:

I made this card for my mother's birthday a couple of weeks ago, and have been waiting to share it with you today for the challenge.  My card is based on a sketch from Sketch Support - I stuck pretty closely to the sketch for this one, only changing one paper to a ribbon.

The card base is from DCWV; the ribbon is from my stash; cardstock, ink, and stamps from Close To My Heart; and pattern papers and pins are from the Making Memories Chloe's Closet line.  I think the pins make great candle wicks/flames!  I simply pierced them through at the top of the candles, taped them down on the backside, then covered the entire inside top of the card with another piece of cardstock to hide all of the pin ends.

Now, be sure to head over to Scrappy Frog's and see what the other DT members have to inspire you!
