Seize the Birthday #245


It's a Seize the Birthday Thursday once again and we have a new topping for you to try out.  This one is a bit different and very fun.

We are asking you to use the sketch below to create your birthday card.  

Sketch interpretation tends to be an individual preference.  I am one who tends to loosely follow the design and add my own spin so I used the wide vertical and horizontal strips as a guide for the placement of my florals.

I began with a stencil/die combo to ink blend and die cut two sets of the same floral.  I adhered one vertically and the other horizontally, snipping a bit here and there for better flow.  All that was left was to stamp the greeting and add some pretty pearls.  

Altenew - Hill Blossoms stencil and die combo
Ellen Hutson - Totally Random Sayings Vol 3  sentiment stamp set
Trinity Stamps - Captivating Cantaloupe pearls

I invite you to visit our blog and hope to see your birthday card in our gallery.  The topping is always optional.

As always, thanks so much for spending a bit of your day with me.
