Unforgettable Birthday

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Travel". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

This was a fun challenge! If you haven't already, please check out the cards from my teamies. We've got trains, planes, automobiles and more! I had a couple of stamps that would have worked for this theme, but I was inspired to use this cute little car from Lawn Fawn. I visualized the guest of honor coming home from a party, with balloons and presents spilling from the car. That would be an unforgettable day, don't you think? My card is really simple, though originally I'd planned on a lot of other elements. Everything seemed to be detracting from the images, so I just kept removing things until I was left with a CAS card.

I'm also playing along with the Lawnfawnatics Challenge, which is Something Old- Something New. My older products are my Stitched Rectangle dies (use those things to death), and the little balloon from the So Much to Say stamp set. Though not brand new but new to me, is the sentiment from the Elphie Selfie stamp set. At the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, it's Anything Goes! 

Stamp Sets: Home for the Holidays, Elphie Selfie, So Much to Say (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Basic Black (Stampin' Up)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic
Tools: Big Shot, Home for the Holidays Dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stitched Hillside Border Dies (Lawn Fawn)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

This sweet little CAS card speaks to my heart. It's pure delight. Wouldn't it be fun to have that car pull right up to your front door?! Love it! Bev

Oh YES! This is one cute card. Love it all. I like the white space. The contrast between the car and the road. It looks great. Have a blessed day.
