Lots of candles for a 40th birthday

This card was made for Steve's 40th birthday in November, but wasn't blogged then. I've got several pictures of cards saved ... and just haven't had time to do anything with them, so thought I'd have a bit of a session of showing some.

Back to this card ... I used three different Kanban silver foiled sentiment cards for the background (this was an 8 x 8 card) using a silver strip between them.

I stamped on to some Birthday sentiment card (again from Kanban), using a much-loved Docrafts candles stamp (partly stamped twice to make it up to 40) and the Happy Birthday, both inked with memento Paris dusk. Candles were coloured with spectrum noir pens. Other bits and pieces were from Kanban kits.

This is for:

Heartful stamping (stamped blessings): anything goes + a stamp
The house that stamps built DCC27: a way with words
Lost coast 46: boys, boys, boys
One crazy stamper February: anything goes
Stempelsonne 198: anything goes
Fashionable stamping 131: anything goes
Little Miss Muffet 182: anything goes
