Seize the Birthday Challenge

We are back from our December off status, and I am happy to be creating again!  While this challenge would make a great Christmas card, this is a birthday card challenge, so I made it accordingly ;).  Actually, I have family in New York and this card will be perfect - snow and all :)

I cut out the oval shape, sponged on 2 purple shades of oxide ink, and then spritzed on some water.  I just love the reaction these inks have with simple water.

I used an OOB stamp set, and a birthday sentiment from Simon Says Sentiment Strips. [I just adore the line of strips SS offers. I always struggle stamping my own straight]  I am also entering this into the Time Out Challenges 178 - Life in the City.

Okay then, your turn!  I hope you are excited we are back, and that you join in the Seize the Birthday Challenge.



Thanks for stopping by~
