Celebrate with Cake!


This card was SO much fun to make and I got to use several new things (one of my New Year's Resolutions)!!  

The stamps are a sneak peek at a new Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration set  (you can get it FREE with a $50 purchase during SAB which starts on January 6th!) and chalkboard cardstock from the upcoming SU Occasions catalog (also coming January 6th). 

I used Chalk Box chalk inks for the sentiment and the banner die is from Verve (they have a great sale going on right now).  Taking small circles cut from tissue paper, I pinched them and adhered to the banner to make the tissue "flowers".  Then, I cut a thin candle and popped it into the cake.

Thanks so much for these challenges for the inspiration!

HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!
