Seize the Birthday - It's Just A Number

Hello friends and welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge.  This time our "Toppings" option is to use number(s) on your brithday project.  You can check out all the details here.


I made this card for my great-granddaughter who is turning 12 this month.  Can you guess she likes purple. :)  I used this cute girl from MFT Every Day Is A Picnic (discontinued), she reminds me of my sweet great-granddaughter.  I stamped her and then reduced the size on my copier so she would fit on my card with the balloon die cuts from MFT Birthday Balloons.  I added the balloons so it looks like she is holding them behind her back.   I colored the girl and the balloons with my Copics and Promarkers, fussy cut the girl out and adhered both with foam tape.  The 12 is done on my computer.  The white oval panel is cut with a Sizzix die and the purple panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug Birthday EF.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday and join in this fun challenge.

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

Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
