Seize the Birthday - Use Sentiment as Main Focus

Hi friends, it's Thursday and time for a new Seize the Birthday challenge.  This time we have a "Toppings" option to make the sentiment the main focus on your card.

Here is my card.  I used the colors from Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  I stamped the sentiment from MFT CS Chalkboard Greetings in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.   I sponged the 3 inks over the embossed sentiment and then wiped it with a paper towel.  I mounted it on a white mat and Wild Wasabi mat.  I mounted that panel with foam tape on a Blushing Bride panel stamped with the MFT Happy Birthday background stamp in Blushing Bride ink.  Then they were all mounted on an MFT Smooth White CS base.  Lastly, I added the 4 pastel dots by Sticko to the corners and a CTMH Enamel Star over the star in the embossed sentiment.

Now it is time to check our all the fabulous creations by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
