Things are heating up...

Good Morning!!
This morning I am really excited to show off a new stamp.
I just found these stamps, and they are darling.
Isn't this stamp adorable?
It's called Birthday Candle Birdbrain.
From the Heart also has a couple of challenges going on right now too.
They have a sketch challenge which I thought this would be perfect for.
I needed a birthday tag for someone very special to me.
I used 3 different fun, birthday patterned papers for this tag/card.
I also added the cute sentiment that came with this cute stamp
A little bit of green glitter ribbon and 3 crystal birthday candles
 were the perfect added touch.
For the finishing touch, I tried something new and a little unconventional.
I curled down the edges a little and right above the "candle",
I burned the edges just a little.
Yeah, I really did say that I burned them.
I thought it would really be a great touch.
For the "flame" I also just a little bit of a gold glitter pen.
A few fibers, and we're done.
I really like the way it turned out.
I did mention that From the Heart had 2 challenges.
The second one is a progressive challenge.
You buy this month's challenge stamp, use it, enter it, and
you get next month's challenge stamp FREE!
How cool is that?!!
And who wouldn't just love to have this cute little guy on a card,
a tag, or anything else.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
From the Heart - Sketch
From the Heart - Progressive
Inky Impressions - For Someone Special
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Scribbles Designs - Sparkle it Up
