Hi there 🙂 Well, it’s been awhile, but summer has thrown even more at me, and I’ve been dealing with that, and not in the mood for blogging. Another restart!!! I have a co-worker that’s getting up there in years (aren’t we all!), but he has a fantastic sense of humor. I had him in mind when I made this card, featuring a bunch of candles from the Lili of the Valley Candles Stamp Set. I merged 3 of the big groupings together so they fit a slim line card shape, and also printed off some of the “extras”. I colored them with my Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut the extra candle shapes, and popped them up here and there with some adhesive foam.
I added some gold sparkles to the flames of the popped up candles. I had printed a part of the sentiment when I did the candles, and after everything was colored and assembled, I added a die cut sentiment, that I also popped up with foam. Hopefully this card will bring a smile to an extra special co-worker 🙂
I’d like to enter this in the following:
