Seize the Birthday

A second post today!

My amazing friend Lesley has started another blog to help us keep up with our birthday cards.  It's called Seize the Birthday.

Lesley will give us a sketch and we use it one week for a girly birthday card and the next week for a masculine birthday card.  What a fun way to keep up with our stash of birthday cards!

Here is this week's (and next week's) sketch.

Here's my girly card.

It's going right in the mail.

And since we're applauding the Birthday Girl, I'm taking this to the CAS-ual Fridays 

Both of these challenges are offering prizes.  Just saying that you might want to check them out.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Embellished Events
Ink:  SU Markers (Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist)
Paper:  Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Summer Smooches DSP
Other: Apothecary Accents Framelits, Square Lattice EF, Ovals die (retired)

Thanks so much for the visit.

A beautiful and elegant card Bonnie, I love the vibrant colour of the design paper. The embossing is just perfect and I love the pearls adorning your cake.

Lovely card, Bonnie. The deep red is a beautiful colour, especially teamed with the white and I do like the embossed die-cuts. Elizabeth xx
