Our family has lots of summer birthdays  so I decided to make a few cards ahead of time.  The Birthday Banners Stamp Set with the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits makes quick work of creating a few birthday cards.

 I decided to create my own background paper using the balloon stamp from Birthday Banners.  My color palette consists of Dapper Denim, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron & Delightful Dijon.  The balloons are stamped randomly off & on the paper to create a background dsp for my card.

The candle is stamped with Mint Macaron Ink on Whisper White Cardstock in 2 sections leaving some white space in the middle in order to make the candle extend beyond both sides of my banner.  This piece with the candle is then cut with a Lots of Labels Framelit.

The banner from Birthday Banners is stamped on Whisper White Cardstock with Watermelon Wonder Ink.  The sentiment on the banner was stamped with Delightful Dijon Ink.  The Bunch of Banners Framelits made quick work of cutting  it out.  A small bow made with Thick Whisper White Twine adds the final touch.  I purposely kept this card simple so that it could be used for anyone.
