Hello and welcome! Time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! This time, we have a the optional Topping ‘Die Cuts or Punches’. Of course, there’s also the option of Anything Goes, as always, which means you can join us with a birthday project which uses die cuts/punches… or with a birthday project without it. Your choice!
And here’s what I created –
I was mesmerized by this background that Miriam Pratner had created on her card. I used my cheap watercolors to make my background similarly, just using different tones. Once dry, I added a few black splatters and then adhered stacked die cuts from Penny Black Playful Posies. The sentiment (both die cut and stamped) is from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint & Wet Paint 3. Add a few little pearls for embellishing, and that finished the card!
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
The Card Concept : Coloful Basics
The Flower Challenge #24: Anything Goes
Paru’s Card Making challenge: September challenge: Anything Goes
Happy Little Stampers: September Anything Goes with Dies challenge
Hope you liked my card! Joining us is also out Surprise Party Guest, Marianne! Check out the Seize the Birthday blog to what she created, along with the rest of our talented design team!

Thank you so much Pooja – that’s all the watercoloring I could handle just then!! ;D 😛
You have passed on that mesmerizing background to us Ashwini! I must give this a try whenever I get back to card making. It looks incredible! Those flowers appear to be dancing! Great job once again! Have a wonderful day!
Isn’t that a great background, Nancy – really easy to make but makes such a wonderful impact! I want to use it again too – and see how you’ll use it yourself too! 🙂
Awesome use of the die cuts with that fabulous striped background!
Thank you Vicki!
Love that bright a beautiful background on this card. The white die cut flowers are just what it needs.
I was actually debating between one embossed with Verdigris EP and leaving it with white cardstock – this one won in the end! 🙂 Glad you liked it, Barbara!
Your watercolor background with the silhouette flowers make for a beautiful pairing! Great card!
Thank you so much for your kind words, Laura!

Thank you so much Susan! Glad you liked it!
Those white diecut flowers show up beautifully against that fab background, Ashwini!
Thank you so much Shirley!
Awesome background Ashwini, and I love your use of silhouette die cuts over it. I have silhouette dies that I never use, so I am pinning this for future inspiration!
Thank you so much Sandy! You should check out my inspiration from Miriam – it’s so much more!!
I love the beautiful backdrop to your die cut florals. Can you believe I have not used this die yet, even though I’ve had it for a while? I was in awe with Miriam’s background, but really like your spin on it as well.
Oh, I have had this die for a long time too! I am actually trying to use my older stamps and dies – and that’s the reason you see it on the card!! Hopefully, your’s will come out soon too!! 🙂
Gorgeous background and I love how the white pops! Fabulous card!
Thank you Glenda!
Perfection, Ashwini! Gorgeous color scheme, balance and my all time favorites – beautiful die cuts!
