Seize the Birthday - Soft and Simple

Hello my crafty friends.  It is Thursday and time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday.  
This time our "Toppings" option is to make your birthday project soft and simple.  I am not too good at simple, but here is my version.
I embossed a frame using an older embossing folder, added a Pretty In Pink die cut daisy using MFT Upsy Daisy die set, and then a couple of punched leaves from SU Mint Macaron using an old Family Treasures punch.  I mounted the flower with foam tape and added a Candi Dot to the center.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blooms stamped in SU Basic Gray.  A quick and fairly simple card.  I hope you like it.

You should stop by the Seize the Birthday blog and look at all the fabulous creations by the Design Team.  I hope you will play along with us.

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

Happy Stamping,
