Okay, this card is a bit of a throwback. I used an old retired stamp set called Big Birthday Candle by Stampin' Up. Not a lot of patterned paper on this one, but you'll see that striped Urban Garden pattern yet again.
It makes fun candles, doesn't it? I used Baja Breeze cardstock for the candle flames. I added faux stitching on the white card base and the black cardstock using a black marker and white gel pen. That used to be pretty popular in the stamping world. lol Then I added my sentiment from Whimsical Words on a white circle, popped up slightly for dimension.
