I have no particular love for the color combination of red and yellow. For some strange reason though, I've been making a lot of tags and cards using these two bright colors together. Hmmmm...

Anyway, I am in my birthday cardmaking mode and this is another card I made. This stamp, made by The Artful Stamper. I stamped it on watercolor paper and embossed with gold detail embossing powder. The image is watercolored with Twinkling H2O's so the candles really sparkle. Then I pop dotted a couple of the dancing candles for dimension and added stickles glitter glue for even more punch.

The "celebrate" sentiment is from Stampin' Up!. Then I decided since it already was full of sparkle, why not put three red "gems" at the top for a little more glitz. This card really sparkles but I'm not a good enough photographer to capture all of its sparkle.

I've got more cards in the making on my table so I'd better get them finished. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a bright cheery card! I love this cute image!

  2. LOVE that owl card! This is kinda fun & wild - maybe you are gravitating to the brighter & more cheerful tones because you know Bella wouldn't want you down in the dumps forever. Glad you're back to stamping and I hope each day is a bit easier for you.

  3. Happy Belated Birthday Jennifer!!!
    DAH---Oh my gosh as soon as I saw the birthday card I realized yours slipped by this weekend without a cherry best wishes from me! So happy you may now be ready to enjoy a few sparkling creative moments! Know good wishes continue to be sent your way!
