Seize the Birthday: let's celebrate!



We're back with a new sketch over on Seize the Birthday!


We're working on both masculine and feminine birthday cards!

Remember you have 2 weeks to complete a birthday card, or two or more, and link up!

Our Super Sponsor is



Here's how I was inspired by the sketch:


I used Neat & Tangled's stamp set, Party Dots.  The banner and sentiment are from that set.  You can't quite tell from the photo but it has been stamped on a pale grey paper to compliment the American Crafts silver glitter paper.

The patterned paper is from the Studio Calico May Card kit and I used a SRM sticker.

Can you read the patterned paper?

Love you to the stars and back.

sigh.

Stashing this card away for Darin's next birthday.

Make sure you check out the Seize the Birthday blog for all the deets about our Super Sponsor and to see what the other gals on the Design Team created!
