Tall and Skinny for STB!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time our “Toppings” option, is Tall and Skinny! And of course, if “Toppings are not your thing, it is always “Anything Goes” at Seize the Birthday!

My card:

DSCN0362I must confess that this was the first time I have ever tried a “Tall and Skinny” card! I thought it might be hard to fill all that ‘skinny’ space but once I settled on a stamp set, it was pretty easy and I am quite happy with the results.

Since we are still not experiencing any ‘Spring-like” weather here in Ottawa, I had to go with a floral theme again. I am beginning to wonder if we will ever see new growth ever again – although the weather forecast for the weekend sounds promising, but you never know!

As always, our challenge is open for two weeks, until April 21st, so there’s lots of time to link up your creations – you can check out our challenge rules here.

I don’t know about you, but coming up with something ‘manly’ can sometimes be a challenge!  So you’ve got to check out what my fellow Design Team members have come up with!  Truly inspirational! NancyGlendaColleen, HannelieSharynJodeneJoAnnMarzenaShirley and Anni!

We can’t wait to see what you create!!!

Sure hope you will join the party!

Here’s what I used:

Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, So Saffron

Since I don’t do a lot of scrapbooking, I decided to take our sketch and turn it into a card.  The Birthday Bash DSP is so colourful and cheerful, that I couldn’t resist showing it off with the Big Day stamp set.

Our challenge is open until Friday, April 10th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.
