Seize the Birthday

Yay, I was able to make a card (mostly left-handed and typing with my left hand) for the first time in almost 2 weeks.  I saw the doctor Tuesday and he said to continue keeping my fractured arm in a sling and take it out twice a day and let it hang down so I don't get a frozen elbow..  I can move my hand but not my upper arm, where the fracture is.  I go back in 2 weeks for a check-up and more x-rays.

It is Thursday and time for Seize The Birthday.  It is anything goes, no toppings.

For my card I used MFT Whisper White and SU Rose Red CS & DSP.  I stamped the flower from SU Beautiful Bunch and sentiment (no name) in SU Rose Red.  The flower is punched with the matching Fun Flower punch.  I added pearls to the center.  The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders Circle & Scalloped Circle dies.
Both were moounted with foam tape.  The MFT Layered Leaves die is cut from SU Pistachio Pudding. I left the punch out sections in for more interest.

I am linking to Just Us Girls also as it is Wild Card week - anything goes.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards by my teammates at Seixe the Birthday and play along with us.

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