A Sparkly Birthday

A Sparkly Birthday

How about some simple coloring and matting for today’s card?

This was stamped in black, and then colored with distress markers. (I know, what a shock! I didn’t use copics!)

The black stars and the candles with no flames looked a little barren to me, so I dug out some stickles in red and blue. Adding the flames was fun! Start at the tip of the wick, and squeeze a little dot of stickles, then pull up, without adding any more stickles. You get a great flame effect that way.

A little close up for you:
