Seize The Birthday - Spring Fling


Hello, we've got a new Seize The Birthday challenge for you - Spring Fling!  Or Anything Goes if you prefer.



At the time of writing this post, the UK has just started its 'stay at home' phase.  Who knows what the situation will be when this post goes live.

I've been holding on to this gorgeous bird for ages, but it's time to set it free.  I diecut it from a Gelli Plate print that I made using lace, and I love the detail of the pattern.  The sentiment is from Uniko, and the leaf canopy from Altenew.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team and from our surprise party guest, Stef Perry, and play along with us.
