Lots of Candles

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Candles". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

This is another card I made while on vacation and with very limited supplies, so it is super clean-and-simple. The candles were stamped in Memento ink and then colored with colored pencils. I have to share my great bargain purchase, too. I was able to snag this $50 box of Prismacolor pencils on Black Friday weekend for $8! Score! 

Stamp Sets: Doodle Birthday (Recollections), Birthday Wish (Stampendous)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Versamark
Colored Pencils: Prismacolor
Tools: Heat Tool
Accessories: White Embossing Powder (Simon Says Stamp)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Wow what an unbelievable price on your colored pencils! Your card is super cute! Love the almost cartoon type look of the candles! Love how they are not so perfect! Well done... as I would expect! :)
