Seize the Birthday - Make it Pop

 Hello friends.  We have a new challenge starting today at Seize the Birthday and Ashwini wants us to make our cards pop.  I thought orange and lime green would pop so that is the colors I went with on my card.  I don't use orange very often but I like the way my card turned out.


I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Florals 7 to die cut my flowers.  I cut the 2 medium layers twice from SU Pumpkin Pie card and the smaller flower once for each flower and shaped them with my stylus before gluing them together.  The leaves are cut from a scrap piece of Parakeet Party card and blended with the same ink around the edges.  The white panel is embossed with Spellbinders Stylized Trellis EF and mounted on a Pumpkin Pie mat.  The sentiments are from SU Sending Smiles stamp and die set.  I die cut the base layer of Sending in Pumpkin Pie and the top layer in white.  Birthday Wishes is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on a die cut shape from the same set.  The flowers and small sentiment are mounted with foam tape and the leaves glued under the petals.  I added two fancy rhinestones to the flower centers for a final touch.

Be sure to check out all of the great cards by the team over at Seize the Birthday and join in the fun.
Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day. 

Happy Stamping,
