Seize the Birthday - Floral

It's time again for the Seize the Birthday Challenge.  This 2 week challenge has a topping of Floral.


I used Inspired By Stamping; Cherry Blossoms, along with a Happy die cut from Stamps of Life.  For my background, I used smooshed alcohol inks.  I was inspired by this photo;


With this challenge, it is always an anything goes, and the topping is optional.  We hope you join in over at Seize the Birthday Challenge.


Thanks for stopping by~
