Birthday Wishes for Seize the Birthday

Hello and happy Thursday friends.  It is time for a new Seize the Birthday challenge and this week we have the "Toppings" option of using Inlay Die Cuts.

I used SU Bloomin' Heart Thinlets die to cut the filagree heart and then I embossed the negative with SU Lacey Brocade EF (retired) and then placed the die cut back in the negative over a piece of SU Pink Pirouette CS.  I stamped the matching flowers from SU Bloomin' Love in SU Smokey Slate ink, die cut them with the matching dies, and sponged them with Pink Pirouette ink.  Then I glued the flowers over the die cut.  The banner is from the same stamp set.  I used my Basic Gray marker and went over just the outline of the banner and stamped it.  The sentiment is from SU Happiest Birthday Wishes (retired) and I did the same with the marker as it had more words on the stamp.  I mounted this with foam tape.

Be sure to check out all the fabulous inspiration by the Design Team, using Inlay die cuts, over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us.

I am also linking my card up over at Just Us Girls challenge - use hearts on your card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
