Seize the Birthday #239

Happy Thursday everyone !  The Seize the Birthday gang is back with a stenciling challenge.  If toppings aren't your thing any birthday card will do.  My card today features some wonderful washi tape goodies graciously sent to me by my friend Michele.  I'm sure you all know her but if not, I highly recommend that you following her.

Michele did most of the work for me by adhering the washi goodies to white cardstock and die cutting the pieces before mailing so this card was a breeze to create.

I began by lightly adding ink onto a white panel using a pale pinkish/lavender ink through a brick wall stencil.  I then matted this panel onto lavender cardstock leaving a narrow border on all four sides before popping it up onto an A2 card base.  I adhered the washi bouquet to the panel, popped up the preprinted foiled sentiment and added some pretty pearls as accents.  I cannot wait to try out the other pieces she sent to me.  (There will most likely be a purchase in my future but how does one decide?)

Pink Fresh Studio - Anemone Magic washi tape
Pink Fresh Studio - Foiled Sentiments
MFT - English Brick Wall stencil
Trinity Stamps - Pearly Pink, Vivid Veridian, Shimmering Sky pearls

I invite you to visit our blog for much more inspiration.  Lorraine is still guesting with us so be sure to stop by and give her a little bit of love as well.  

Thank you Michele for sharing your wonderful goodies with me today.  As always, my sincere thanks to all of you who are spending a bit of your day with me!
