For this card I started with the Designer Paper - Jesrsey Shore. I chose a piece of it and then took my colour scheme from there. (Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Whisper White)
The stamp I used is from a "retired" set from the Sale-a-bration catalogue called "Birthday Whimsy". I inked it with my Wild Wasabi inkpad and then removed ink from the candles and plate with a cotton bud and stmapin' mist. Then I re-coloured whose areas with a Brilliant Blue marker and Pumkin Pie marker.
The sentiment is from the Cheer and Wishes stamp set.
The brads are from the Bold Brights selection. I probably would use the brads differently if I did it over again. Maybe one in each corner of the main image section or something like that...
