Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Happy Thursday friends.  It is time for a new Seize the Birthday Challenge and this week it is "Anything Goes" as long as it is for a birthday.

I also want to welcome, Monika Reeck, as our Surprise Party Guest for the months of August and September.  Welcome, Monika!  Please stop by her blog and leave her some love! Glad to have you with us Monika.

For my card I used SU Primrose Petals CS (retired)  and Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower dies for the flowers and mat. I sponged the petals with Primrose Petals ink and shaped them with a stylus.  I added white enamel dots to the centers. The sentiment is SU Beautiful Birthday (retired).  The leaves are from SU Botanical Builders Framelits cut from a scrap piece on my desk.   I punched the border with an EK Success Border Punch.  That is it for my card.

Be sure and hop over to the Seize the Birthday blog to check out all the fabulous creations by the Design Team.  I am sure you will be inspired and I hope you play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate it when you take the time to leave me a comment.
 Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
