Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
This time around the "Toppings" option is Presents. You can also chose to do an "Anything Goes" birthday card, the choice is yours!
I did go with the present theme, and my gift is this furry little cat in a box! I would be thrilled with a gift like that, my DH not so much, lol! One crazy kitty is enough for him :) I stamped and colored him, then paper pieced the box and cut it all out by hand. The patterns are pretty busy so I left plenty of white space to give them room to "breathe".
The layout was inspired by this week's sketch at Retro Sketches...
...and by my own furry cat, Oliver!
