Happy 29ish birthday

Card making and scrapbooking inspiration can come from anywhere.  Today's card was inspired by what I found in the baking aisle at Winco (a local grocer) last summer when I was preparing for my son's birthday.

There's also a little bit of history to the 29 and holding idea.  We were out to celebrate my mom's  birthday and one of her grandsons asked how old she was and she replied, "29."  I remember celebrating the 20th anniversary of her 29th birthday with a handmade card was a teenager.  

Back to the inspiration.  Aren't these candles fun???

I took additional inspiration from the card featured in our Seasonal Expressions catalog.  I even used Tangerine as my accent color for the pop of bright color.  I'm so glad the Teal Shimmer Trim is back for a bit.  It's now called the "Make Waves Shimmer Trim" but it's the same wonderful color as before.  Don't wait around; it will only be here for a little while longer.  The striped paper is from Chelsea Gardens.

ish is simply a circle with the letters "attached" in Design Space.  The font is from Artistry.  I love negative space items because I don't have to keep track of the teeny dot over the "i" in projects like these.  Here's a link to the file.  This file also stars for an upcoming card I created with the Stamp of the Month.  It will be on the blog soon.

Birthday Time S1803 is going to be a workhorse stamp set of your collection. It's available for just $5 with a $50 purchase this month.  

Don't forget when you order BirthdayTime from my website for $5, you'll be the recipient of a happy mail kit designed by me.  

P.S. If you are still reading and love teeny details, go back up to the first pic.  You'll see a sneak peek of 2 papers in the 2018 National Scrapbooking Month kit called Postcard Perfect.  I used them as my backdrop when photographing the card.  ~ Enjoy!

I'm linking this post up with seizethebirthday blog challenge "Anything Goes" as long as it's birthday challenge.
