Seize The Birthday - Floral


It's time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and our theme is floral.

I stamped these funky flowers from Artemis onto a Gelli print made with lace and stencils, stitched a border around the panel then matted it onto purple card before adhering it to my main card base.  Added some Crystal Stickles on the petals, and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted, and it's done!

Our Surprise Birthday Guest for the next two challenges is Patti from Stationery Styles.  Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for Patti's and the Design Team's wonderful creations, and add your project to the gallery.  If you don't want to use florals, that's fine, as long as it's a birthday project.

See you there!

ETA:  Added to CAS Mix Up - thanks for the prompt, Loll!
