Seize the Birthday - Use Script or Text Background

Hello Friends.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time our "Toppings" Option is to use script or text background, of course the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.

For my card I dug out an old SU En Francis background stamp and stamped it in SU Early Espresso ink on DSP from an older Prima Cigar Box Secrets 6x6 pad.  The SU Beautiful Birthday (retired) is stamped on some of the same DSP.  I cut it with an MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Oval and trimmed around the edge to mat it on Early Espresso cut with the same die.  The large scallop mat is cut with MFT Blueprints 20 die.  I cut MFT Sunflowers from SU Crushed Curry, the centers from Early Espresso and the Royal Leaves from Wild Wasabi.  I mounted the sentiment panel and the flowers with foam tape.  The card base is Recollections 110# Cream CS from Michael's.

Now you should check our all the fabulous cards with script/text by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
