    I love the candle cards. I have 3 sons and these would be great for them. Knowing my boys I would have to leave the sequins off and find something else to embellish with.

    Cute birthday cards! I love how you used the die cut “stencil” to make sure your candles are straight on the front of the card!

    This has been such a fun week. Although I’ve seen some of these techniques before I’ve learned a lot too. It’s been fun playing all week long. Van’t wait until next year! I may have to go back and check out the first set as I think I missed it.

    TGIF! I have loved following along with Camp Create this week but have been too busy with work to play along. But today is Friday! I plan on getting in some good crafty time this weekend and look forward to trying out some of the awesome techniques you’ve shared. Thanks for a fun week. 🙂

    Back to comment. Tried earlier to comment and got an error. Like the Die Cutting technique. I do not think I have a MFT die cut that fits this so I’m hoping that I can use any die I have and use at least 1 MFT item with it to enter. Please let me know if allowed.
