Seize The Birthday - No Toppings

We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and this time there are no toppings, so anything you like, as long as it's a birthday project.

I've done a one layer card so that I can play along at One Layer Simplicity where the theme is What's Your Number?  Erm - all of 'em!

I'm also playing along at Inkspirational, where they also have a one layer challenge.

This card didn't start out well, as my first imprint with spritzed Distress Inks didn't turn out as well-defined as I'd envisaged, so I just overstamped with black, and now I like it :)

Pop on over to Seize The Birthday for some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, and play along with us!

I'm off to build my new Rastog trolley and re-arrange my craft room.  Who knows what treasures I might find??


  1. GREAT save! The black looks amazing...especially with the bits & splashes of the splattered colors! Great sentiment too :)

  2. those wonderful numbers and your save it amazing, you would never know if you had not shared the photo. Just beautiful.

  3. I never would have known that your design was 'unplanned' (shall we say! lol!) - Love the colours peeking through and the Art Deco sentiment! So glad you joined us at OLS!

  4. Love that you shared with us your first attempt Shirley! I love that you stuck with it!

  5. So cool, Shirley ... a perfect rescue! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. Great save on the card! I probably would have trashed mine and started you inspired me to try to rescue some of my "mistakes"!

  7. Shirley, what a fantastic card-rescue you performed! I haven't used my set of this image and now, with your card as inspiration, I have incentive to do so! Fabulous!!
