Seize The Birthday - With Toppings


Welcome back to Seize The Birthday!


We have an optional topping this week of tags.


I used one of the techniques from the Online Watercolour Card Class for my tag, and topped it with a Tim Holtz balloon, coloured with Distress Stains.  Stamped a few rows of Happy Birthday and added some baker's twine.

I'm entering this into Seize The Sketch - too much of a stretch-a-sketch or not?


Come and join us and add your birthday project to the challenge - with or without topping!

  2. Its adorable , I will say you made me smile with your comment of “ too much of a stretch” , Since I did follow the sketch very loosely myself. Love the birthday sentiment.
