Seize The Birthday - Birds


We've got a new challenge for you at Seize The Birthday - Birds.

I've had these little red rubber stamps (Crafty Individuals) for a while now, and I thought it was high time I used them.  I stamped them on white card, coloured and fussy cut them, then layered them onto a piece of patterned paper,  and a diecut frame (STAMPlorations), added a Tim Holtz die cut, a sentiment from my new set Baa Baa.  Added some grunge stamping in Pickled Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade on the base card to mimic the patterned paper and called it done.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some fab inspiration from the team, and our surprise birthday guest, Kim, and play along with us.  If birds aren't your thing, you can still play along with any birthday-themed project.  See you in the gallery!
