Seize the Birthday ~ Winter Theme

I am sure we all have a friend who has a birthday during the winter this challenge is for those friends and family!  The Challenge is to make a WINTER theme birthday card, my husband and I have a male friend and this card is in the post going to him, I thought it was a more masculine card
I love cardinals so I couldn't resist placing a couple on the trees, plus it adds a little pop of color.
I hope you will join me and the design team for this winter theme birthday card.
Go to Seize the Birthday   to play along.
Welcome to Seize the Birthday everyone!
Since at least half of our country is having a major blast
of Winter right about now, I thought it might be fun to incorporate
 that as our " Toppings" option this week.

Our "Toppings" option is 


So break out those winter stamps, die cuts and or punches and let 
us see how you interpret the winter season!

Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!
