Seize The Birthday - No Topping


Hi, and welcome to another Seize The Birthday Challenge!  This time there's no topping, so as long as it's a birthday creation, you're welcome to play along.

Today's card was made for a workshop we did at my local club - mirror stamping.  The image is from Penny Black, and it's great for a male card.  We specifically bought some polymer mirror stamps to use, but I found the best results were from using the back of a large red rubber background stamp - they seem to transfer the ink best.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and from our Surprise Party Guest, Tenia Nelson, and join in the party fun.
