You've got to get a copy of this weeks card sketch at Sketch Support. It is so cute and it is great for using up all kinds of scrap paper. For the first card, I actually used the cover sheet that shows you all the patterns that are in the package and cut it into smaller sections. I would have felt bad using brand new sheets of paper for tiny little strips of paper like the ones shown.

For this card I added pattern paper to the background and stitched a border around the card. I then machine stitched on the candles and hand stitched the flames on top. Instead of the stripped paper I substituted ribbon and added the sentiment.

On this card, I switched out the candles for balloons. I used kraft paper as a background. With a pencil, I lightly drew my strings on the card. I used my sewing machine and stitched the strings. I probably should have practiced a bit beforehand, but I just winged it. Some of those loop-de-loops look like I was intoxicated at the time. I added 3D foam adhesive to some of the balloons to make them stand out. Added felt ribbon and topped it with a sentiment.
