Happy 50th Birthday Jenny - SIL

Now Jenny may not be quite as excited as I am about this card but I did have a fun time making this. I saw a card on Pinterest which led me to this card on Splitcoast Stampers.   Decided to stick with my Stampin Up card stock and papers as I know that it all goes together and takes that little worry away.  The base card is Old Olive and then topped with Very Vanilla.  I then challenged myself to finding 50 different SU patterned papers.  I do not have a huge collection but when they are double sided it did make the challenge easier.  I even missed adding a couple as they were mainly Old Olive colouring and I thought that would be too much.  The lady above had used the colour wheel to arrange all her candles so I did the same.  The candles are 7cm x 1.5 cm, I then hand drew the black wick and panicked a little as I couldn't find a stamp for the flame.  Made my own….. cheshire grin.  :-)  I found a foam shape in my collection that stamped up as a flame…I just added the backing to it so I could attach it to my acrylic block.

The front is computer generated with silver sticker border.

Across the top I have attached multi coloured Happy Birthday stickers.

I hope my SIL forgets in the number and enjoys the special day.

Have a good one everyone.
