The Blow Out the Candles stamp set (which is available in a bundle with the Candles & Confetti Framelits Dies to save 10%) has some great images, but my favorite is the sentiment that I used on today’s card. It’s one of those fonts that you can dress up or down, use on fancy cards or casual cards, “velvet or denim.” I think I’m somewhere in the middle here, with the sentiment surrounded by die cut ovals and the rich colors and design of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper. What do you think?

Here’s what I made:
