Here's a fun birthday card that anyone would enjoy, young or old! Love those square cards, and the candles are perfect for it! I used the new Blendabilities markers on the cake and while I didn't really blend the colors, they were absolutely AWESOME to work with!!! They are alcohol based markers that don't streak and blend perfectly. (Our Stampin' Write markers are water based.) You have to use Memento Black ink for the new markers (it's in the new catalog - yea!)
Stamp sets - Sketched Birthday, Short and Sweet (retired)
Cardstock - Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Very Vanilla, Basic Birthday Designer Series Paper
Ink - Memento Black, Blendabilities markers (Neutrals, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight and Coastal Cabana assortments)
Accessories - Gumball Green Stitched Satin ribbon, Stampin' Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals
Not a lot of frills or necessary accessories on this card so it's easy to duplicate.
I don't like that black peeking in from the top left corner, but it was such a good picture, I didn't want to start over :)
