November Release with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the November New Release Blog Hop with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!
November is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' birthday, so we are celebrating with lots of new products including birthday goodies.  There is something for everyone in this release!

I have used two new products for this card- the Bare Tree Die and the Scripture and Sentiment Companion Set for this card.  I sponged the sunset and added the tree and yellow leaves (was going for an Aspen tree).  The edge of the oval is embossed with gold ep.  Although you can not see it, the leaves have a wonderful sparkle to them, having used my Wink of Stella pen on them.  I could not find a purple button, so I made my own by stacking and gluing several layers of die cut cardstock circles and then adding a coat of Crystal Effects over the top.

This card uses the new Birthday Word Die, the Baked For You Stamp Set, Lots-a-Spots Stamp Set, Companion Word Stamp Set, and Music Background Stamp.

I cut the candle from the Birthday Word Die, fussy cut my cupcake from the Baked For You Stamp Set (do yourself a favor and get the matching die!)  and then glued the two together and embossed with 2 layers of clear ep.  I used the cupcake with candle as the 'i' in the word 'Birthday'.
The rest of the word 'Birthday' is stamped with the Music Background image and then heat embossed with 2 layers of clear ep.
The words 'happy' and 'to you' are heat embossed as well.  For a little added interest, I stamped the circle image from Lots-a-Spots to resemble bubbles rising.
