Seize The Birthday - Stripes


It's a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and our optional topping is stripes.


I'm well into stripes at the moment - if you follow my blog and/or Instagram, you may have noticed ;)  I've been sloshing Distress Reinkers of various colours across card panels, not bothering if they're accurately spaced, or even straight!  (You can get away with anything in the name of art.)

The stamps are from my latest release, Layered Watermelon, which launched this week.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team and from our Surprise Party Guest, Trina P, and play along with us.  If you're not into stripes, you can still play along with any birthday-themed project.
