Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes


Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday and this week there's no topping, so as long as it's a birthday project, anything goes!


I found this panel in my stash (I'm trying to use up all my half-started/half-finished bits and pieces). Watercoloured background, colour bleached from the centres of the images.  All I had to do was add a bit of colour.  It was twice as big as you see, which was a bit too big to do anything sensible with it, so I cut it in half, and got two cards out of it.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the design team, and from our guest designer, Sherrie Koning of Sherrie Scraps With Passion and play along with us.

  3. Ha ha, I just did this too. Cleaned up my craft room and used up the bits and pieces to finish cards. I wonder how this got into the pile in the first place. The you got two cards? What a great feeling!

  8. I also have bits and pieces of this and that of cards started and stopped for one reason or another in three different baskets on my desk that I really need to use up! I don't throw away much in hopes I can use it somehow! You did an incredible job with this and that from your stash! Your watercolored background looks like the sun is about to set! Great card!

    1. It's a combination of images from Penny Black 'Nature's Wishes', Jenny. I'll post the card I made with the other half soon and you'll see where I cut it in half.
