Seize The Birthday Design Team!


I'm thrilled to say that I am now on the Design Team for Seize The Birthday!  I've been playing along with this one for a while, sometimes with toppings, sometimes without, but I like that it's always a birthday theme and you don't need to use the topping if it's not your thing.

So for my first assignment, the topping is white on white.


I've die-cut Clustered Leaves (SSS) from card and vellum, and Tattered Florals (Tim Holtz) from card, and stamped the flowers with Paper Artsy Ink & The Dog Mini 44 in Versafine Smoky Grey.  On a white panel I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts CL611) in Versafine Onyx Black, stitched a border around the panel, then mounted all the elements and added two grey pearl gems and a black gem in the centre of the flower.

Pop over to Seize The Birthday to see what my teamies have created, and join in, with or without toppings!


ETA: I'm adding this to Time Out Challenges - Happy Birthday.  Thanks for the prompt, Sandie!

  3. The card is beautiful and because it is white on white it allows the sentiment to shine. The text flower is a nice touch.
