Seize the Birthday #218 - Framed

A quick note before you read this post.  Most of you are aware that Feedburner went away on July 1.  I decided last minute, to jump on the Follow it email.  So if you still want to get a notice that I have posted, just sign up on Follow it on the right. 

We have a new challenge for you and this time TaeEun has chosen a Framed theme.  If course if you make a birthday theme card that will work too for this challenge. But come on, get out of your comfort zone and make a framed card. Just take a look at youtube for the rest of the team at Seize the Birthday for inspiration. I did! 
Here is the card that I made after looking at some of Jennifer McGuire's videos on Youtube. 
I will link it up here.  It is called a floating frame card.  I have done them before, but I really like how this turned out. 
         Don't you just love it when you can match an envelope to your freshly made card? 

I used the Altenew Persian Motifs stamp and die set colored with Copic markers.  A standard circle die for the cutout, and my new set from Honey Bee called Buzz Words for the sentiment.  I am going to be using this one a lot. 
A closer look at the circle and the pearls. 

Don't forget that we have a Surprise Party Guest and she has some wonderful examples for your inspiration. You can find Melanie's blog HERE.

Ok, I will be excited to see how many of you will use the topping suggested by TasEun. 
See you soon!
