I always love when Kristina Werner uses stitching in her cards. It reminds me why I started cardmaking. With my uninspired mood, her card this week for her Finally Friday video jump started my creativity. What's weird is that I started making this card before her video came out. The candles on my first attempt turned out kinda chunky and ugly so I revised it so the candles were more uniform and clean. I then added a simple stamped birthday sentiment from my favorite papertreyink.com stamp set. As I'm looking at it, it could probably use something more but I keep telling myself to leave it alone.
Here's another version I finished the next day.
