Scraps, Tips and Candles #eBrush

It's a month long fiesta featuring Sabor Papel, this month's Craftwell sponsor.

Lately, I've been challenging myself to make a little something using scraps.  My birthday card, I used scraps from  Sabor's Olé collection.  I used the eBrush with Tombow markers to add shading to the pieces.

To avoid getting inky fingers, I used painter's tape to hold down my pieces.  I took a 6" strip, with the tacky side up, I folded the ends and taped them down to my working paper.  I gently placed my scraps onto the painter's tape and voilà, no inky finger tips or flying scraps.

Here is my birthday card.
Translation:  Make a wish! Blow out the candles!

I found a green doily from my Christmas stash and eBrushed it and added it to the background.
I took the 4"x 6" cut out and trimmed down to 4" x 3 1/2, layered the strips of scraps to the top 3" x 4" cut out.   I used Glue Dots to adhere the yellow top layer and adhered the heart die cut.  
I fussy cut the candy and added them along with sequins to the heart die cut. 
Finally, I added a jute ribbon to the top and adhered the doily border, it's a doiy punch I've had in my stash forever and a day. 

Here is another tip:  I used Mini Glue Dots to adhere the sequins.  It seriously made it so easy.

Thank you for visiting today.
