Seize the Birthday ~ with vibrant colors

Welcome to a new Seize the Birthday Challenge where we are looking for vibrant colors on your birthday card!  Back in March I was on a crafting retreat with 5 other new best friends and one of them, Nancy from artful notions brought this awesome Concord & 9th stamp....I colored it up with the Catherine Pooler Inks and I didn't stamp all the pieces that I wished I had once I was home...so I used some copics on the tips of all the flowers to color them in.  I embossed the sentiment with Zing orange ep on vellum and also added some nuvo drops!
Friends, I hope you will play along with us, like I said the topping is VIBRANT COLORS, but you can always make any kind of a birthday card!  Remember we would like  you to only enter 5 total challenges including this one and be sure that you are doing the coloring on your card, using a digi that was precolored is NOT acceptable!
VIBRANT COLORS!
Heart Hugs, friends!

  6. Absolutely beautiful! I love the extra *pow* of the orange-embossed sentiment on vellum, that still lets that gorgeous background peek through.
