Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes


It's time to Seize The Birthday again, and this week there's no topping, so anything goes as long as it's a birthday project.

I made the background for this card by brayering acrylic inks in various shades onto a piece of card, then stamping over it when dry, and adding a stamped and fussy cut vintage car.  The stamped sentiment didn't really show up, so I used a white pen to give it a shadow and help it pop.

Talking of pop, pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for more inspiration, and play along!
