my finger prints are all over it!

Hello friends!!  Wow... it is hot, hot, hot here in Western Washington and it is expected to get hotter as the week progresses.   So, with nice weather here to stay for awhile crafting is taking a back seat to having fun with my boys.  After along day yesterday of swim class, birthday parties and church  I managed to put together this one layer card for the current Less is More challenge (to use your finger prints... thus the title of my post!) and ColourQ challenge before I went to bed.
The stamps are from the Clearly Whimsy set Happy Everything.  I stamped the candles using Island Indigo and Coastal Cabana and then added the "flames" using my pinkie finger.  The happy was stamped using Hero Arts Punch chalk ink and the birthday using black ink.  I finished things off partially embossing the upper right corner of the card with a honeycomb embossing folder and my trusty craft mallet and a bit of washi tape.  The partial embossing is hard to see in the photo so I have included a detail shot.   Hmmm... wondering if I need to include a detail shot of my finger prints, too...

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Hero Arts & Memento; Washi Tape:  My Mind's Eye
