Birthday candles!

The Less is More challenge this week is One layer and candles.

So for my card I used the Penny Black woodmounted stamp A winner and stamped it with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink.
The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp ( It's your birthday 3x4) and I also stemped it with intense black ink and an acryllic block! I felt lucky my hedghog got a perfect impression being on a woodblock I couldn't use the Stampers friend or Misti or alike and so I also handstamped the sentiment and you can see not  perfect. I didn't want to risk a second stamping without a stamping tool and since it's one layer week I also couldn't cover it up with a banner or such, but hey it's  handmade and doesn;t need to be perfect everytime!

I colored my image with Spectrum Illustrator markers.

P.s. last week's card didn't get more than two comments, I hope this will please the playing  Limettes more ;-)
