Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

It's time for new challenge at Seize the Birthday where I am excited to be the Surprise Party Guest for February and March.

This time we have an Anything Goes challenge, with no toppings. Just remember to keep it birthday themed and link your card over at Seize the Birthday!

I usually start a card with a stamp set, but this design was created around the MFT Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle die that I used to make a frame. A slightly smaller panel was stamped with a sentiment and flowers from PTI's Graceful Greetings stamp set and inset into this frame.

The framed sentiment panel is popped up over a large, embossed flag die cut. A Wink of Stella glitter pen is swiped over the sentiment and flowers.

A few clear gems are colored with Copic markers and placed at the center of the flowers to finish the card off.

I can't wait to see your birthday cards in the Seize the Birthday gallery!

Thanks for stopping by,
