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 with Vellum as our topping!

Welcome to another Seize the Birthday Challenge where we are looking for vellum on your card as our topping!
I die cut the vellum and then used a q-tip to apply my ink on the face of the vellum after white heat embossing it.  I did use a bit of colored pencils to add extra depth to some of the images like the berries and the leaves.  The flowers were done with two shades of ink.
I went around my card with the scor-pal to make some scoring lines to draw your eye in...
This is what I used:
PTI Fresh Bouquet
PTI Bigger Blooms (sentiment)
paper:  white and soft stone
There is a topping friends, but you can always make any kind of BIRTHDAY card too!
We all look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery!
Thanks for playing along!

Heart Hugs, friends!
