Kickstand Birthday Card

I found directions to make a "Kickstand Card" at Kirsten's blog: Confessions of a Naptime Stamper. The card is also a sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers. I am not adding my card to the gallery there because I basically used Kirststen's idea and just changed it a little and I don't think they or she would want that there. I needed to make a birthday card and the one she had on her blog fit the bill. I had some bright paper on hand (from American Craft) that would be great as a birthday card. I thought the candle was a cute idea so I added it to my card as well. A very easy card, I can see why she likes to make them. I made some extras to have on hand. The birthday stamp is from Stampin Up! But I could not find the box with the name. The inside stamp is from a grab bag of unmounted stamps I got almost 8 years ago - The kind of purple-ish paper that I used to mat the circle paper is really blue but when I took the photo it came out purple and no amount correcting it on Adobe would get it blue. Grrr.
