July 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop - make a wish

I always need more birthday cards - they are often requested for orders and I am constantly sending them off to my friends and family as well.  I went for a clean and simple card using some of the blog hop colours.  I took strips of cardstock from my card here and cut short ones to make candles.  For the green colours, since I have no Simply Chartreuse, I used a sliver of  Amy Butler Lotus patterned paper.
I stamped the Fillable Frames sentiment by selectively inking it to make it into one line and then impressed the whole card front with the Book Print impression plate.  I love the subtle texture this adds.  I popped up the 'candles' with thin slivers of cut foam dots and added rhinestones in amber shades as the flames. 
Paper: Staples 110lb white; PTI Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet; Amy Butler Lotus patterned paper
Stamps: PTI Fillable Frames selectively inked to stamp it in a line
Ink: Jenni Bowlin fountain pen 
Misc: PTI Book Print impression plate, amber rhinestones, foam dots

These are so nice. Who has designed it? The designer has a high value in the printing company.
