Seize the Birthday #169 - Sunshine!

 The toppings are for this challenge. 


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

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

Please welcome, Su Mohr our Surprise Party Guest for 
July and August.  
Welcome to the Party Su!
You can find her blog here. 

When I saw this topping "Sunshine"  I thought of bright yellow and daisies!  I recently spent some time making background panels. I remember one that  I had made.  It had large daisies on it done in watercolor and some postage stamps with happy mail stamped.  That is the one that I started with on for my inspiration card this challenge. Then I added one more daisy. 
Here is my card. 

Supplies used are: Simon says A2 curved edge
Simon Says It's your Birthday 
Memory box Ragged Daisy

It will be fun to see what you think of when you see the challenge title for Sunshine.   
If you need more inspiration, please go to the Seize the Birthday blog. This is lots of talent there. 
Thanks for stopping and leaving a comment.  I adore them.
