Seize the Birthday ~ NO Topping!

Hi Friends!  Today we have NO topping, You can make ANY kind of birthday card.
I pulled out Avery Elle Party Animal...which is just a small little stamp with this one little balloon animal image.  I stamped it in white pigment ink on my black card stock, then used my prisma colored pencils to color on top of the white ink. I think it turned out really fun with lots of bright colors.
I hope you will join us and play along with Seize the Birthday!
Heart Hugs, friends!
