Happy Birthday

 Less is More is a recipe challenge where you can choose three of their previous challenges and combine them. I chose Week 22 - Shades of Blue, Week 7 - Masculine, Week 18 - Monochrome for my card. I used the sketch from Moxie Fab World Challenge - Vertical sketch.
Card Details:
Spray of glimmer mist across white cardstock fading out the ink. Cut the piece of the ink that gives the effect you want. Stamp the circles using versamark. Heat emboss using white embossing powder.  My son had the brilliant idea of the candles and I color coated them to coordinate.  :) 
I created this for teenage boy and I liked how it turned out and my teenage son liked the effect so I think it works for masculine. 
Here is the sketch for the Moxie Fab World Challenge:  (which I rotated)
Now onto the winner of the stamp from last week: 

Drumroll please....  The winner of the new Verses stamp and a few other goodies is Debby who said:

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
