One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Seize the Birthday ~ White on White

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!
If you would like to join us in a topping option,
it is "white on white".  If you are not a topping
kind of person, then you are welcome to make a birthday card of your choosing!

I used some Wendy Vecchi white embossing paste for the chevrons,
then adhered it to a white card base.
Please join Seize the Birthday Design Team for this challenge!
White on White 
paper:  PTI stampers select white
ink: Distress Inks: wild honey, peacock feathers, shabby shutters, PTI kraft
dots made from Viva Pearl pen then colored with copics BG 49
stamps:  PTI Feather Finery, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
stencil:  Heidi Swapp chevron

And I would like to welcome the newest addition to our STB team:
