#625 – Seize the Birthday – One Layer

PE: A Cut Above at the Paper Players challenge!

The Paper Players - Honorable Mention

Seize The Birthday - The Toppings

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

And here’s my one layer inspiration-


For this card, I chose My Favorite Things Pretty Posies, stamped and heat embossed the leaves and flowers on watercolor paper and heat embossed them with black embossing powder. I then colored the panel using distress inks. Finally stamped the sentiment, a combination of Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes and Hero Arts Its Your Day.
