Happiest of Birthdays for Seize the Birthday

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week our "Toppings" option is to use teal and white on your birthday project. 
 I love any shade of blue as it is my favorite color, so this was right up my alley, and I love making floral cards.
I used an old SU set Vintage Vogue for my flowers and stamped them in SU Bermuda Bay ink.  The leaves are from my new Papertrey Ink Gran's Garden stamped in SU Pear Pizzazz ink.  I fussy cut the flowers and added rhinestones to the centers.  I die cut the leaves with the matching die.  I used MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Ovals and Stitched Ovals to make my frame.  The center oval is glued directly to the pattern paper and the frame is mounted with foam tape.  The large flowers are also mounted with foam tape.  I found this stripe pattern paper and it matches the Bermuda Bay perfectly.  The sentiment is from SU Birthday Blooms.

I hope you will check out all the fabulous cards made by the rest of the design team over at Seize the Birthday and be inspired to play along with us.

I am also linking this one up to The Flower Challenge #18 - Anything Goes.

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

Happy Stamping,


  1. I dunno what's about this card, it seems simple and also not at the same time. Nevertheless, it definitely is beautiful!
    hugs, Ashwini

  8. JoAnn, you used one of my favorite oldie-but-goodies stamp sets! I sold it off, but regret that I did. Your card is gorgeous and I love how you framed the oval with the flowers.
