Seize The Birthday - Birds, Bees or Butterflies


It's time for a new Seize The Birthday challenge, and this time our topping is Birds, Bees or Butterflies.

I've been in Distress Ink background mode lately, mainly due to catching up on my Tim Holtz Summer of Creativity homework.  For this background, I used a piece of mixed media paper torn from my pad, smooshed and dipped it in Distress Inks, then adhered it to the card front.  The butterfly was smooshed and dipped after it was cut out, but the happy was smooshed and dipped first.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the design team, then add your birthday creation to the gallery.  If you don't fancy doing birds, bees or butterflies, you can still play along provided it's a birthday creation.
