Birthday Firecracker

Birthday firecrackers J well it is supposed to be a candle but.. I think someone with a sense of humour will like it just fine.

I am joining the challenge fun for the first challenge of the year with Seize the Birthday; the challenge is to use numbers. I have already made my ‘number’ card for the year, but I have a ton of DP with numbers on it and in truth never really know what to do with it – silly me, I do now.


I did some layers, added a few sentiments then finished with a little Bang J. I have seen the rolled paper candles and decided to give it a go. I first tried a couple of strands of yellow twine… dynamite anyone, so then I tried a single piece of twine and it looked a little lost on the card. So then I decided to fringe some paper and used that… hence my firecracker..  I did add some glitter pen for a little sparkle.

Supplies: Cream and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Echo Park, Papertrey Ink-Birthday Bash.
