Seize the Birthday ~ Hearts or Love

In honor of Valentines Day our "toppings" option is hearts or love, but still with a birthday theme.  You must check out what the design team has for you because there are some awesome cards by these talented ladies.  It just so happens my DH has a birthday on the 23 of  this month, so I made this card for him.
Using a Simon Says Stamp stencil:  Falling Hearts, I added a drop of Hawaiian shores reinker to Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and applied it to the card base, just on the two sides as I knew I was going to add a center panel.  I embossed the sentiment with Zing leaf powder and the heart with aqua Zing powder.  Simple, I know, but he is a simple kind of guy!

HEARTS/LOVE

This challenge will run until Tuesday, February 25, 9 am PST, remember you can always choose to just make a birthday card, but if you want to add some toppings, add some love and or hearts to your card!  Go check out the challenge over at Seize the Birthday!!
