OLS - Blowing Birthday Wishes ...


Today, I'm sharing my card for the One Layer Simplicity Challenge 32 where Karen is challenging us to use red, orange and yellow. I took an ombre approach by stamping the sentiment in Red Hot, the candles in Orange Zest and the flames in Lemon Drop. For a little texture and shine I used clear embossing powder and heat embossed. Since I stamped with dye ink, I embossed after stamping each color. An extra touch was created by stamping the hearts in the flames with red dye ink and heat embossing.  (Actually, I stamped the hearts/heat embossed after heat embossing the flames ... gives a little more texture to the flames.)

Hope you're having a pleasant day.
