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!

The challenge is lasting two weeks and they have changed the format...apparently it is going to be "anything goes" all the time now!  Just letting you all sketches, no colors, no masculine or feminine...anything you want!!
I tried the "swipe stamping" technique (named by Jennifer McGuire) that she demonstrated on her blog...I remembered to stamp and swipe on every flower and leafy stem...except the BIG one...duh!  You can go HERE to watch her video of this new technique that she discovered!

The inside of the card says Happy Birthday, I am entering this into the Seize the Birthday Challenge.
I used PTI's Bigger Blooms, raspberry fizz, melon berry, sweet blush and new leaf for my inks.


  1. What a pretty card! I love the colours you used. And the overall design though simple is elegant! :)

    Thank you for linking this up to the Seize the Birthday challenge this fortnight.
