Birthday Blow-Out!


I know, I know... FINALLY! *LOL*

The whole purpose was to showcase the TONIC border system I spoke of here! My creation was coming along as envisioned... when the paralysis struck! Sentiment??? Thankfully, patience and tenacity paid off in the scheme of things.

My dear friend, Lynette sent me the most beautiful card using the butterflies punch with the TONIC BorderSystem here! Lynette did you notice that I accomplished this in under a month?! *wink/LOL*

Birthday candles are equipped with a punched border of stars as flames! The star outline and Wish Big! sentiment are from Cornish Heritage Farms latest sets Cardmaker's Shapes and Classic Essential Expressions released TODAY! Mona Lisa already knows that I'm "wishing" for a Cardmaker's Shapes II! *wink*

Hey - you did what I've been meaning to do for ages and turned the polka dots into the reverse polka dots with emboss resist. I thought it would work, thanks for proving it for me! lol!

Great card, Ann - I love the little bling on the sentiment star.
