Seize The Birthday

Good Morning and Happy New Year everyone.  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and start of the New Year.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday.  This week we have the option of using "numbers". 
Before I get to my card, I would like to give a big shout out and Happy Birthday wishes to one of our fellow Design Team members Sheri who has a birthday this week.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday Sheri!!!
I made my card in honor of your birthday.
I went with the "numbers option" and used a Cuttlebug EF to embossed the Melon Mambo panel and swiped Whisper White Craft Ink over the raised numbers. This panel is matted on Pink Pirouette CS and adhered to the Whisper White card base.  The strip of DSP is from the Gingham Garden pack and is matted with Crumb Cake which is punched with the SU Scallop Border punch.  The sentiment from Apothecary Art was stamped in Melon Mambo ink and I hand cut the flagged ends.  The flower from SU Flower Shop is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and punched with the matching Pansy Punch and mounted with dimensionals.  The Old Olive leaves are cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlet die.
 That's it for my card. 
My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, to inspire you with, so be sure to stop by Seize the Birthday and check them out. We can’t wait to see what you create!!! GlendaBrenda, Colleen,  Jodene, Macarena, Nancy , Sheri
