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 ~ SPLATTER!

Welcome to another great challenge here at Seize the Birthday!
The team and I are pleased to announce that we are starting a new feature at STB.  Every month we will have one Surprise Party Guest joining the team for that month.  The Design team and I felt it was time to recognize those of you who play along with us week after week.  After all, where would we be without our participants?  How do you get selected as a Surprise Party Guest?
Well, just keep doing what you're doing and continue to play along, and hopefully you will be recognized too!
Please join us in welcoming our inaugural 
Surprise Party Guest
Anita in France
Welcome Anita!  
We are thrilled you are here and 
now onto our challenge!
Our "Toppings" option this time is...

" Splatter"

I used the die from PTI Garden Gild and sponged on some colors and sentiment, then I splattered on some inks for my "splatter" for the topping!
One can never have too many birthday cards, I hope you will be joining us again!

The TOPPING IS SPLATTER, BUT AS ALWAYS, "ANYTHING GOES"Just make sure it is a birthday card!  We look forward to having you join us in this challenge!
