I recently made this card for a friend in Australia celebrating a Birthday.  I really wanted to keep it clean, fresh and simple.  How cute are these candles?  They are from a stamp set called "Party This Way", just brilliant for what I had in mind.

I have stamped the candles in Staz On Black on watercolour paper.  Using an Aqua painter and my ink pads as a pallet, I have picked up the ink and coloured in the images.  I have also put a strip of Dazzling Diamonds along the width of the card for just a hint of bling!

I chose to put the sentiment for this card on the inside and let the candles speak for themselves on the front.  I think I managed to achieve what I set out to do.  I know my friend was pleased to get it!!


  1. I've had this set on my wishlist for awhile now but never noticed this candle until I saw your darling card. Your coloring and shading is perfect!

  2. It's great Paula. Love the colours - very fresh.

  3. Another "one word" ... PERFECT! Hugs xxaxx
    Love it!!! xxx
