Feeling Springy!!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday Stampers!

It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time there is no “Toppings” option, so the sky is the limit!

It may be Spring on the calendar but Mother Nature sure hasn’t been co-operating! So I thought I would create some Spring with my card.

My inspiration for the layout, comes from this week’s challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

I love the combination of the gold, green and white and since those were the colours I used for my own wedding, I was very inspired to do a wedding card!  The sketch is from the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

Big Day for Seize the Birthday!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday Stampers!

It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we are adding the “Toppings” of the ‘Sentiment as the Focal Point’. But as always, if “Toppings” are not your thing, it is always anything goes at Seize the Birthday!

My card:

I just love how bright and festive the Birthday Bash DSP is and I couldn’t resist pairing it with some of the sentiments from the Big Day stamp set.  And although some of the balloons look black, they are really gold – guess I just picked the wrong time of day to take the photo!

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until March 24th, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.
