Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Hello friends and happy Thursday.  It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and it is "Anything Goes", as long as it is for a birthday.

For my card I used the April Viva la Verve sketch.
The pattern papers are from an older First Edition Summer Breeze 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from Verve Floral Notes and the flower is from Verve Kindness Matters.  I colored the flower with Promarkers and used the matching dies to cut the flower and the leaves.  I also cut slits between the flower petals and shaped them with my stylus.  I mounted the sentiment panel and the flower with foam tape.  I added some Rosewater Nuvo Drops for an extra little touch.

Be sure to check out all the great cards by my teammates over at Seize the Birthday.  So many ideas to inspire you.  Hope to see your card in our gallery.

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

Happy Stamping,
