Birthday Sweets

For this week's Stamp Simply challenge (a new one for me), we were to create a card with a modern edge to it. "Modern" was open to our own interpretation.

For my modern card, I chose to utilize lots of white space and use flair as an embellishment. This piece of flair looked like a piece of candy to me, so I added the sentiment and ribbon to make it look like a lollipop.

Stamps: Stem Sayings (SU)
Paper: PTI white
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: flair (American Crafts), ribbon (Offray)
