Seize The Birthday - Presents


Hello!  We've got another great challenge for you at Seize The Birthday, and this time it's Presents.


I'm using up more bits, bobs and stash.  I found the watercoloured embossed panel in my background stash, and the present, which was already cut out and coloured, in (one of) my (many) bits and bobs packets.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is new, but stamped on an offcut strip of pale blue.

I've got to say, I very nearly just put the present and the sentiment on the card without a background, it looked beautifully CAS, but I pushed my boundaries a bit further with this mix, and I like both versions.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for a look at some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and from our surprise party guest, Linda.

You don't need to restrict your creation to presents if you want to play along with us - any birthday-themed project will do.  Have fun creating!
