TCP Tuesday 290-Stop Counting Candles

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas!  Wendy B. is our hostess this week and she's drawn up a great sketch for us to use.  My card stash is in need of a few birthday cards, so I used the sketch to put together a birthday card using the Sassy Birthday stamp set.

Stop Counting the Candles card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
Alma has generously provided cut files for the sketch, so you can use them for your own version!  For mine, I scaled the tag element down just a bit to better fit the sentiment I wanted to use.  After cutting the tag with my Silhouette, I stamped one of the set's sentiments in blue ink on the tag. I threaded the tag's hole with some orange twill and secured it with some twine.

To go with the tag's birthday theme, I found some number patterned paper.  I adhered the patterned paper panel to an orange cardstock mat.  A strip of turquoise cardstock, topped with a narrower strip of orange cardstock, divides the panel in half.  I used foam tape to adhere the tag on top.  It's accented with a trio of orange enamel dots arranged around the tag.  I layered the panel on light aqua cardstock, then adhered it to an orange card base.

Be sure to stop by the TCP blog for more inspiration and for all the details on how you can play along with the challenge.  Challenge participants have a chance to win a Cat Cash prize (with a little extra thrown in if you use TCP stamps/dies) and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.

In addition to checking out the TCP blog, be sure to follow the TCP Facebook page, too.  For every 50 new likes by May 15, we'll give away one $15 gift voucher to the TCP store.
