Seize the Birthday - Monochromatic

Hello friends, I hope you are having a blessed Thanksgiving.  This post is scheduled and at this time I am enjoying dinner with my family.

We have a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and the "Toppings" option is monochromatic. Remember it is an option and the only requirement is that it be for a birthday.

  I used 2 red pattern papers from American Crafts Crimson 6x6 pad and matted the sentiment panel with Recollections red CS.  I stamped the flower from SU Flower Shop in SU Real Red ink and sponged the petal edges with the same ink.  I shaped the petals and added some black micro beads to the center of the flower, then mounted it with foam tape.  The sentiment is from Verve Cake and Candles and that panel is also mounted with foam tape.  The white background panel was embossed with Darice Linked Circles EF.

Now check our what the rest of the designers have created for this challenge over at Seize the Birthday   I hope you will join us.

This is our last challenge for 2017, we will see you in 2018.  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
