#830 – Seize The Birthday: Flowers

PE: Winner at Winnie & Walter Color Combo challenge!!

Hello! I totally forgot to write my post for the Seize the Birthday challenge. 😦 But better late than never!! πŸ™‚ So the topping for the new challenge, given by Vicki, is to use Flowers. Of course, the topping is optional, and as long as your project is birthday-related, it’s worthy of entry.

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Here’s the card I made –

Seize the Birthday: Flowers

I started with the florals. I used Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Ashlees Rosie Posies with Lydia Evans, stamping the outline in black ink, and once I finished stamping the colored layers, I used a black pen to thicken some of the lines. I then used Neat & Tangled Scalloped die to diecut the panel. I wanted to mount this on a grey panel, but I didn’t have the right color. So I used my Zig brush marker to color a white card panel and trimmed it to size to use it for base. I mounted this on a white card base.

For the sentiment, I used Scripty Sentiments from The Stamp Market, stamped it in grey ink; the other piece of the sentiment comes from Winnie & Walter Sentimental: Birthday. I then fuzzy cut it. Both pieces are foam mounted on the floral panel.

I am joining the following challenges with my card –

  1. The colors are really lovely!!! The scalloped edge makes the card so much cuter and DIY gray panel works fabulously as contrast!
