Seize the Birthday 16


I feel like this is a repeat of yesterday’s post, with blue and yellow playing starring roles!  It is a cheerful color combo, but today’s cards feature the Seize the Birthday sketch:

This happens to be MY personal favorite go-to sketch of all time!  If I am in a hurry and need a card, you can bet this is the layout I’ll use!  A couple of coordinating DPs, a focal image, maybe some ribbon, and I’m good to go!  Today I broke out my new Garden Gingham paper along with a new set called Label Love, which will be in the upcoming catalog, as well as a retiring set, Decorate a Daisy:


While I was cutting my paper, I figured I might as well make two!  Same design, a few little changes to each one.  The first one uses Label Love with the coordinating punch, and I also diecut some banners to place behind it:


I love the vintage look of this stamp, as well as the country feel to the paper!! Makes me smile!


The next one uses Decorate a Daisy along with some ruffled ribbon, a large flower punch and a bit of embossing, as well as a Daffodil Delight mat on the front:



I also added a sentiment from Fabulous Phrases, and embellished it with some pearls!  What a great sketch, I love it!  Thanks for visiting today!
