Seize the Birthday #258


Today's card is celebrating spring birthdays as it fits the theme of our new Seize the Birthday challenge topping.  I found myself scurrying once again to get caught up after weeks of traveling so simple is the name of the game today.

Fortunately I placed this stamp set out on my crafty desk before leaving so I knew exactly what to create when I returned.  I used a multi-step stamp set to create the florals.  I currently have the most gorgeous lilies blooming outside my front door so I used a similar color palette for my design.  I added a narrow border of cardstock and popped the main panel up on the embossed card front using fun foam.  As per my usual, I added in a sprinkling of clear droplets to finish it off.

I invite you to visit our blog for more inspiration.  We'd love to see your card in our gallery.  Remember, our toppings are always optional but do remember to make it a birthday card.  

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