The More Candles...

Morning All! This was a fun couple of cards I made using LAD's Happy Birthday set. I had a lot of fun with this "b" image and this color combo. It's flocked on the first card, and glittered on the second. The first card is my favorite, though.

For the first card, the flocking (Pixie Pink Fun Flock) kind of covered up the negative flower part of the image, so I added my own! That is one of the little flowers (that I got from Monica from Hambo in my recent order - thanks Monica!) from Michaels' bridal bucket - too cute.

For the background, I embossed the black with my Cuttlebug/Swiss Dots folder, and brayered the dots with my white Craft ink pad. The icing part of the cupcakes were stamped and cut out of pink paper, then layered onto the black stamped cupcakes. Scallops were made with my SU! Slit Punch.

Rhinestones are A Muse Twinkle Stickers and the brad is Bazzill.

With this picture, the glitter looks kind of wonky, but much better IRL. I also used a black pen to outline the flower, to make it more obvious. This is a 4 1/4 in. sq. card. The glitter is from Martha Stewart.

Well, that's about it for today! I'll have another Elzybells card for you tomorrow! Till then...
