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 ~ Anything Goes

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!
We have NO extra toppings this time, so any kind of birthday card will work!
I played with my new CPD Faithful Flutterings to flutter by with birthday wishes!
I hope you will play along with us, please check out the fabulous cards by the designers for more inspiration!  And my splatters are NOT handmade!  *wink  Birgit from Crafting While I Wait brought this stamp from MFT called Distressed Patterns to our craft retreat back in March...and yes I already bought it!  I love it, I don't seem to get the splatters where I really want them to go, or I make a big splat and it is just a mess...so this is right up my ally with controlled splatters!  *wink *wink
Thanks for sharing Birgit!
I look forward to seeing you in the gallery friends!


Heart Hugs, friends!

  4. Those are some great 'controlled' splatters!! The beautiful butterflies look even better, and it all suites the design so well. Love it!

  6. Ha ha! I love your artsy butterflies and the splatters. A stamp you say, right up my alley. Going to take a look at that. I also love your watermark, I take notice now and hope to make one for my personal use that is more transparent. Did you do yours? I would love to know.

  10. Just browsing your blog--way behind in commenting. Came upon this gorgeous card & had to tell you how much I love it! I enjoy making my own splatters, but sometimes you need more control as you've shown here! That's a cool stamp! Luckily I have some splatter stamps from Precious Remembrance Shop & recently used one--so fun!
