Hi friends this challenge for Seize the Birthday is about using some of our wonderful pattern papers!  We are looking for at least TWO pattern papers on your BIRTHDAY card!

This is what I used on my card:

Mama Elephant: Make a Wish (sentiment)

We look forward to seeing what you make with this challenge, remember you can always forgo the toppings and make any kind of birthday card!
