Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time - Birthday Candle Card

Hello everyone!  Today is a new Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time.   This time there are no cricuts allowed.  You can use dies and punches!  It's amazing how often I automatically turn on my cricut.   I made few cards before I realized I used it for one of the layers!!!  So I made another one without using my machine!
Supplies I Used:
Lost and Found Two, Breeze  -  My Minds Eye
Ocean Tides and Vintage Cream Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Fiskars Border Punch
Stormy Sky Distress Ink
Memento Black Tuxedo Ink
Offray Ribbon

 I got the idea to use a birthday candle from a newsletter I received.  Unfortunately when my email was hacked last month everything was erased.  I apologize for not being able to give credit.

Here are some of the other cards I made using the Cricut Cartridge Elegant Edges for the layers.

Lost and Found Two, Blush  -  My Minds Eye
The Guy Stack  -  DCWV
White Out Collection  -  We R Memory Keepers
Vintage Cream, Sweet Blush, New Leaf and Kraft Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Mandarin and Shore Twine  -  The Twinery

Please go check out Emma's blog for all of the design teams "Cricutless" projects and don't forget to link up and play along!  Have a great day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

Very cute cards, it is hard not to turn on that cricut. But MCT does have some awesome stamps and dies.

These are beautiful!!! I love the real candles on there tied off with a beautiful bow. Amazing job on all 3. And it is true how easy it is to turn on your Cricut and get going to town. Awesome job! Hugs- Glora
