Seize the Birthday - Presents


 


               It is time for Seize the Birthday Challenge.

Take some time from your holiday card making to make a birthday card.

You know that you will need them.  This month the Topping is Presents, so you could combine that with a Christmas card.   

 

 

 

 If you're not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!


 This is a different view. I wanted you to see the layers used.  I used my Mini Minc to foil the fun dots then added some sequins too.  I saw a video and used this idea on my card. This is where you can find it too.  Here 

I don't have  the reactive mist, but I had a pen that a BFF gave me that worked well.  I used double sticky tape for the teal banner.  Just like Lydia did.  

 

 

Stamp set is Power Poppy Party Time. I used a water coloring card stock and my distressed markers to color.  Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Peeled paint, Picked Raspberry. Archival Ink , Watering Can.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by for a closer look.  
Don't forgetwe have a Special Party Guest too.  Her name is Sherrie Koning  and you will find her designs here. Check out what all of the other designers have done Seize the Birthday challenge
Happy Thanksgiving  and a Merry Christmas to all.

  6. Oh, Barb, I love your card! It's gorgeous with this darling stack of gift packages, and your coloring is stunning. The foiling really is fabulous, and I watched Lydia's video, which was very interesting. I don't have a Minc machine (or see that I would ever get one), but I see that I could at least foil the line with tape. Beautifully done, sweet friend, and thanks for sharing it with us! Hugs! xoxo
