Fab Candles

#stampinup  I can't believe that when I first saw the "Build a Birthday" stamp set as a choice in the pre-order, my thought was, "Meh." Oh my goodness --I was so wrong! People have been making fabulous cards with this set--so you betcha that it was on my second order!!

This week's Fab Friday challenge is a color challenge: use some or all of the new In-Colors. I chose Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush, along with a little Delightful Dijon.

I stamped the candles in Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush onto a scrap of Whisper White card stuck and fussy cut them. Then I stamped the flames in Delightful Dijon onto Whisper White and fussy cut them, too. I cut a Whisper White oval from the Oval Framelits Collection and the next larger sized oval in Watermelon Wonder. I arranged the candles a little haphazardly onto the oval, just for a little interest.

I ran a Cucumber Crush panel through the Big Shot, embossing it with the Decorative Dots embossing folder. I attached this to a Whisper White card base. I cut a 1" strip of Whisper White and a 1-1/4" strip of Watermelon Wonder. I flagged the ends with the Hexagon Punch. I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment onto the Whisper White banner in Cucumber Crush.

I adhered the oval onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, and a tilted it just a little bit. I added the banner with Stampin' Dimensionals as well. 

And there you have it! I think it turned out right cute!
