Seize the Birthday

Happy Thursday friends.  We have another new challenge for you at Seize the Birthday and this week it is anything goes, for a birthday, of course.

 
For my card I used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 468
and my new Verve stamps Kindness Matters and the matching dies Great Kindness.  I stamped the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white CS and sponged SU Baha Beeze ink on the petals.  I layered the flower and added a large golden rhinestone to the center.  The leaves are also cut with the same die set using Pear Pizzazz CS.  The DSP I used was on my desk and is from an older paper pad and I don't have the name.  It has sparkle to it.  I cut the small tags with an older McGill punch.  I punched a hole in the tops and added Black/White Baker's Twine.  The sentiment is Verve's Happy Birthday Plain Jane stamp (sorry, it may be discontinued as I couldn't find it on the site).  The sentiment panel is cut with Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats-Rounded Rectangles dies, but I only cut part of the way and then put it back in the die and cut the other end to make it a square.  The tags and flower are mounted with foam tape.

Now check out all the fabulous cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.
I hope you will join us.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
