CAS Birthday Card for a dear friend.  This card was made with a variety of products.  I had an idea of what I wanted and just pulled pieces together to complete the card.  I love the bright, bold design.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

G1033 Pemberley WOTG (flower stamp was used for the flame)
D1514 Just A Number
D1475 Card Chatter-Birthday
Rock The Block Stamp Set (Dot Background)
11385 White Daisy Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
X5759 Pacifica Cardstock
Z2192 Pacifica Ink
X5918 Gypsy Cardstock
Z2190 Gypsy Ink
X5918 Topiary Cardstock
Z2155 Topiary Ink
X5918 Sunny Yellow Cardstock
Z2162 Honey Ink
Retired Orange Cardstock
Retired Orange Ink
1272 Cranberry Cardstock
Z2116 Cranberry Ink
Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento

While the supply list seems a mile long, the paper was all from my scraps.

Design Tip- I inked the flower petal stamp, for my candle flame, in honey ink and then rolled the edges in the orange ink pad to mimic flames.  I stamped the dot background on my cardstock strips to add texture.
