Seize the Birthday Nov 5 NO topping

Time for another challenge and this time there is NO TOPPING!  
I randomly sponged on some fine linen ink over a new stencil from MFT (new to me!) called Wonky chevrons.  My stamps are from Vintage Linen, the leaves are PTI: Leave it Be.
the sentiment is from Altenew: Label Love
I really love the look of the black background with white sentiment.  In this case the paper is white and everything else is black ink! (versus using embossing powder!)

Thanks for taking a look and for making a birthday card and linking it up to the Challenge!


  1. I love this background and gorgeous flowers Colleen! I love the leaves stamp you used for this. Hope you are happy and well.

  2. Oh, this is so pretty! I thought: "What gorgeous flowers.... I wonder what set that is..." and then I realized I own it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Wow...what a wonderful card, love your beautiful background and those flowers are so pretty.

  4. Beautiful! The soft background is a perfect match to the colorful flowers.

  5. I am in agreement Colleen! Love your background too! Great card!

  6. Stylish and so elegant, Colleen ... the softly shaded chevrons are a fabulous backdrop to these beautiful blooms! So happy to be guest designing alongside you at Seize the Birthday! Anita :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
