The Creative Team and I are back with the “cherry on top” as we have one more bite of inspiration to share today! I decided to use the candles from the Make a Wish stamp and die combo along with one of the funny sentiments from Bright Birthday (*grin*):


I started by stamping the four different candles in a rainbow of colors. Then I cut a piece of chocolate cake (i.e. a brown rectangle with rounded corners) and popped it up over the top of the candles. The sentiment was embossed on the Chocolate Truffle layer with white embossing powder.


Then I cut a frame from the Stitched Rectangle Frame Stacklets and popped that up with foam tape. To finish it off I added sequins to the candle flames.
