Seize the Birthday + MHKDesigns: Pink Poppy Birthday


Hi, friends!  I am back with my last creation for the current challenge at Seize the Birthday!!!  I want to say one last THANK YOU SO MUCH to Nancy and this amazing DT.  They have been so kind to have me the last two months, and I hope you've been playing along with us!




You can never have too many birthday cards, and I can't wait to share with you what I have for this fortnight's challenge!  The challenge for the next two weeks is "Anything Birthday Goes" with a topping option of "Pink and Brown". Check out my creation...


I used the Perfect Poppies digital stamp set from MHKDesigns for the flowers on this card.  I colored them in with Spectrum Noir markers in two shades of bright pink.  I added some punched leaves and light pink pearls to accent these beautiful blooms--I just love them!  The sentiment is from the Eat Your Cake digital stamp set and was printed onto vellum before being added to the card.


The brown polka dot paper is from the Glorious Garden paper pack.  I added some twine and a button for more texture and interest, and then the focal panel was added to the card base with dimensional foam to add a bit more depth to this creation.  I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun at Seize the Birthday!  One last THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all the gals I've gotten to join the past two months--you are all fabulous, and I feel so blessed to have been able to work with you!  I'll be back soon with more paper crafted creations to share with you.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
