Seize the Birthday....


Several weeks back I came across an announcement of a new challenge blog
coming out that would focus on birthday cards.
It is called Seize the Birthday and you can find their very first challenge by clicking here , I am sure lots of you already know about this as I have been seeing lots of entries on your blogs for this great site but for those of you that don't , please stop by for a visit.

They will be having two sketches each month with the players creating both a feminine and masculine card with each of these.
This week's sketch takes a feminine turn and next week we will use
the very same sketch to create a masculine card.


As I have a few people that like to purchase my cards as well as a couple of 
locations in town that sell them for me, this is the perfect way for me to 
add to my stash. Love this challenge site!

For my card today I used papers from the very first paper pack that I purchased from Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden", it has always been a favorite of mine and I am afraid there are not 
too many sheets or embellishments left, so sad!
My floral image is from Stampin' Up's "Elements of Style" stamped in Old Olive with the sentiment
from "Well Scripted" stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia.



Now, as I am cutting this a bit close getting my card done and posted I had better close, you will still have time to enter your card if you hurry as the deadline is tomorrow, Tuesdaythe 15th at Noon.
Thanks for stopping by.....
