Seize the Birthday #228


Happy Thanksgiving to all of my United States friends.  I am hosting the great American feast here at my house with my extended family.  I hope you all get to spend time with your families as well.

We have a new prompt over at the Seize the Birthday challenge blog and hope you can find time to play along.  My dear friend Lindsey is our host and she has chosen Hobbies and Pastimes as our new theme.

I have chosen a pastime that is near and dear to both Lindsey and me.  Reading.  
I created my card with a young recipient in mind however I think it would work for any book lover.  

The card design is pretty straightforward to recreate.  I stamped and Copic colored my image mid-center of my white card panel.  I stamped the sentiment above and below the image.  I die cut two thin frames to border my image, coloring one orange and one blue.  The only thing left to do was to adhere it to an orange card base and add some colorful enamel dots as embellishments. 

We'd love to see your card in our gallery.  If you're not a toppings person any birthday themed card qualifies.

Continue to stay safe and healthy my friends.   _____________________________________________________________________________
