Hi everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. This is also the final STB challenge for 2018, as the team takes time off in December for family, friends and festivities. We hope you'll find time to play along!
This time around the "Toppings" options is "Tags". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!
So... you know how sometimes you start to make a card, but it has a mind of its own? Well, I picked out these background papers for my card, and had something entirely different in mind for the focal image. But then I remembered I had matching journaling cards, all from an old kit from Simon Says Stamp. The tag was much larger but I trimmed it with another tag die, and the butterflies were cut out by hand from another journaling card. The only thing that was stamped was the sentiment. Fun, easy, and so color coordinated!
I followed through with the same elements on the inside of the card with another journaling card, a hand cut butterfly and a stamped sentiment.
