Avocado Arts: Happy Birthday

It is the 15th of the month, that means I get to show a sneak peak of the January stamp set from Avocado Art called Sweet Treat Sweetie.  It has everything you would need to make, from Birthday to Valentine's Day, and I Love You cards.
The Happy Birthday sentiment really stood out to me, so I knew I wanted to make a birthday card.  I chose to use the candle stamp to accompany the sentiment (if candles are not your thing, there is a cute cupcake to use instead).  At first I was going to stamp them onto the kraft card base, but it looked a little plain, or maybe my design was all wrong...or both lol.  So I stamped them onto ivory card stock and die cut it out using a Spellbinders die template.  The hearts in the corners are from the December set.  The die cut is popped up with foam tape, and the bakers twine I believe is from the Twinery.
Check out the rest of the designers and what they are sneaking today:

Simple recipe for card:
1. Cut/score card stock.
2. Stamp hearts in red ink in top opposing corners.
3. Tie twine around card front into bows.
4. Die cut ivory card stock.
5. Stamp images (color in with copics) and sentiment with black ink.
6. Adhere diecut to card using foam tape.

As I laid in the hospital bed I started thinking that I had a show to do. I was hoping the Doctor would put me together so I could do the show

As much success came to him, my father stayed true to his promise. He built the hospital to help the most helpless children with catastrophic illnesses
