Sieze the Birthday

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is for a birthday.

We have a new Guest Designer, Anita Bowden.  Help us welcome Anita by visiting her wonderful blog and leaving her some love?


For my card I used DSP from Authentique Latest & Greatest 6x6 pad (I love the pink & black color combo).  I matted everything with black.  The scallop mat is cut with an MFT Blueprints 20 die.  The white panel is embossed with a retired SU EF.  The banners were cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags Stax and Fishtail Flags Layers Stax.  The flower is made with Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur set.  I sponged the flower petals  with SU Pink Pirouette ink after stamping and die-cutting them with the matching dies.  The leaves are from Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose set and cut with Botanical Wings die.   I added a yellow enamel dot to the center of the flower.  The sentiment is from Verve Happy Birthday Plain Jane stamp.

Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the design team over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us.  Can't wait to see what you create.

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

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
