Seize The Birthday #1

DSCF2173

I managed to squeak in a little stamping time today to play with my friend Lesley’s new challenge, Seize the Birthday!  This is sketch #1:

The challenge is to make a girly birthday card, so I gathered some pretty MME papers, a scrap from my desk that I had already embossed with SU’s Honeycomb EF and went to work:

A couple of diecuts, a PTI sentiment and I was done!  This went together REALLY quickly!  Any questions?  Shoot me an email!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge, too!  Toodles!

All of that lovely patterned paper makes for such a cheerful card. (Maybe not quite as cheerful as a little girl with a princess wand!) So glad to see you at Seize the Birthday!

Bonnie said...

Such beautiful colors, LeAnne! I've yet to use my EF. I would have never thought to diecut it, but I love the idea! Cassidy looks really into casting a spell!

I have a silly question for you about this one. Am I missing something when I say I can't find the hexagon punch/die/whatever you used to cut the printed paper that's in your embossed honeycomb? I looked through the main catty and the spring "mini" but can't find anything. Doesn't mean it's not there. Just means I can't find it. :) tnx!
