Seize the (happy) Birthday


There's a new sketch in town, STB #19!  Our very own Jen Nelson at Seize the Birthday created this fabulous sketch to work with ... isn't it fabulous?!  The different panels gave me special permission to use not one, but three different patterned papers from Crate Paper Acorn Avenue!  Love when that happens...the Little Red Wagon Challenge #189 is just that...Use 3 or more patterned papers!


A Day for Daisies has generously offered to be our sponsor for this sketch!  I have a beautiful image from ADFD, and sadly, my printer is not working and I'm unable to show it to you!  However, the other Seize the Birthday DT girls are showcasing ADFD images on their projects, so make sure you go check them out at the STB Blog!



The adorable images on my card are Wendy Burns Designs, Cupcake Cutie, from My Favorite Things...so adorable!  I colored the little girl image and her cutie patootie dog with Copic markers, fussy cut them out, and popped them up with foam adhesive over a few layers of patterned paper.  After a little ribbon and sequins detail, this "happy" card is ready to give a special young lady for her birthday!

Oh this is just too cute. Love that stamp that you used. Looks like computer problems were everywhere this week. I had issues too.
