Seize the Birthday ~ Nothing but Neutrals!

Yeah!  It is another Seize the Birthday Challenge !
This time around for our "toppings"  we are looking for 
I had several ideas and laid out a couple different designs...didn't realize how difficult it is to just use "neutrals!  *wink  Although I really do like how this card turned out using just plain neutrals without any "real" color!
  My card base is PTI soft stone.  I embossed a WPlus9 lattice frame in white card stock.  I took PTI's Frilly flowers and die cut and stamped each of the three with PTI fine linen, kraft and soft stone inks.  The "happy" is a PTI die cut from Phrase Play #5 ~ die cut two times and glued together.  The birthday is stamped using PTI's Keep it Simple: Birthday collection.

I hope you will play along with this challenge, I am anxious to see all the different ways you come up with using neutrals for your birthday cards!  
I was just thinking...neutrals would tend to lend themselves to "masculine cards", but nope...nothing like frilly flowers for a girl!!

Happy Day friends!


  1. This is a wonderful use of neutrals.It gives a soft look to the card and still makes an impact. I love the flowers and papers you used.
