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 ~ Twine or string!

This time at Seize the Birthday  we are looking for twine or string on your birthday card!  That is the topping for this challenge.  You can always make ANYTHING GOES kind of card too!  Go check out the inspiration from the other DT's on the blog!
I have been loving the angled cards I have seen lately, so I decided to give it a try.
My posies are from MFT: Easter Bunny...of all places for these cute posies, huh?
The sentiment is a SSS from Birthday Balloons.
I used PTI supplies of white paper, pattern paper and pure poppy, new leaf, scarlet jewel inks.
The twine is from the Twinery!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Now go make yourself a birthday card and enter the challenge!
Remember the topping is TWINE or STRING!
 I am in Tulsa, Oklahoma for 12 days with my husband, daughter, SIL and my 13 year old granddaughter.  Ellie was selected to be on the Continental Team for USA Volleyball.  She will be there for 10 days training and then playing in a tournament with girls from all over the world. 
She is super excited and so honored to be one of just a few liberos selected from the entire US to join this group of athletes.  We are of course proud of her and excited to watch her play at a high level.
so you won't be seeing any crafting from me for the next couple of weeks!
Go out and make it a great day!
Heart Hugs,
