Seize The Birthday - Clean and Simple

This is my second post today.  For my new stamp release, The Bee's Knees Winged Things, click here, where you'll see lots more cards I've made with this set.


It's time for a new Seize The Birthday challenge, and the topping is Clean and Simple.  If Clean and Simple isn't your style, you can still play along with any birthday creation.

I created my panel by stamping the large butterfly from my new stamp set, The Bee's Knees Winged Things, then watercoloured using Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from Deepti's set, Balloons and Banners.

If you've seen my earlier post today, you'll see the other half of this panel on another card, along with a few more cards using the stamps.  If you haven't seen it, click here.

So, how about playing along at Seize The Birthday?  Click here for more inspiration from the team, and to join in.  See you in the gallery!

ETA:

I'm adding this to the galleries at City Crafter - Butterfly, My Butterfly



and Timeout - Birthday (minus the optional twist of sponging).
