Catch The Bug Challenge–Anything Goes!


I love the “Stella” images at Catch the Bug store.  This one was a freebie and she is called “Stella and So Many Candles” with the sentiment to go with it.  I sure know how she feels, I got a birthday coming up, and there will definitely be too many candles to blow out!!

The layout for the card is a Sketch challenge at  Create4fun challenge blog.  I colored the image with copics, and used the Spellbinder round and scalloped dies to cut and layer the image.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart.  I used frosty pink stickles on the present, and clear stickles on the candles and her hat.  I also used liquid applique on the frosting and then added some clear glitter.  The flowers were made from the matching cardstock (leftovers).  I also made a gift bookmark to go with the card.  The tassel is made from embroidery thread.  The ribbon and brads are leftover stash.
