Unscripted Birthday

Since it's Saturday, it's Unscripted time! The sketch today is pretty fun and those design team girls have some great samples. Somehow, I am needing birthday cards so when I saw the sketch it looked like a candle to me.
The colors are So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry (I know it looks like burgundy here), and whisper white.
  • the flame I made by punching so saffron with the large oval, then I just trimmed a little off one end for the flame shape
  • I also sponged the edges of the flame with Crushed Curry and spread the middle with Crystal Effects
  • to get that smaller label, I used the Modern Label punch. After stamping the words I punched it close to the left side. Then I stuck my label on a piece of typing paper and punched again with it close to the right side.
  • the pattern paper is from Stampin' Up!'s Tea Party designer series
The background is the Celebrate wheel inked in VersaMark.
Enjoy your Saturday! I'm off to do a little shopping.

Great idea for that sketch!!! I need to play some time, but Saturdays just do not tend to be a day I get time to craft (maybe because I am up until 2 am every Friday doing my Etsy Post?????)
