Seize the Birthday First Challenge of 2018!

Welcome friends to our first 2018 Seize the Birthday Challenge!
There is NO topping, so just make any kind of birthday card!
I made this card using a kit from PTI called Don't Forget to Write!
I added all sorts of bling inside the circle, it is not a shaker, just lots of fun sequins and nuvo drops for a fun birthday card.
Be sure to check out the design team because we all have our own ideas about a card without a topping!  Lots of inspiration for you!
And we have a SURPRISE PARTY GUEST FOR YOU...the one and only
KreativeKristie, please go give her a big welcome!
and joining us as a permanent team member is Lindsey from Bashful Blogging.
Please give both ladies a big welcome and visit their blogs!
See you in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. So sweet and beautiful, Colleen. I love all your fun embellishments and CAS design. TFS and Hugs..

    1. Such a lovely card, Colleen! Very pretty pink flowers against the white background! Great design, too!

  2. Oh, Col! I think you just invented a whole new non-shaker shaker style (NSSS) and I absolutely LOVE it! How easy compared to a shaker and other than the rattle, it's every bit as amazing! And this one is so, so pretty with the flowers and these colors!! Pinning!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. So pretty and girly! :) Love all the pink. Wonderful dessign with the circle aperture and corner flower bouquet. Love the striped pink inside the circle, along with all the bling! xx

  4. Your card is so refreshing to see with all of the beautiful pinks. Love the circle idea too. My card is similar this week too as I used a circle, but no shaker. Lol

  5. This is so pretty! I love the soft colours and all the bling. Nice to see on a cold winter's day!

  6. Looks totally fun! So many sequins and Nuvo drops, in a non-shaker seems like a wonderful idea! Love it!!
    hugs, Ashwini

  7. Love the faux shaker look created with lots of pretty sequins! And the floral cluster is so soft and pretty!

  8. I don't enjoy making shaker least I don't think I do. LOL I really have only made a few so I don't thing that is enough to cast judgement. This card is perfect! The striped paper really makes it a fun design! Well done and Happy New Year to you!

  9. This is so soft and sweet Col! I really love this color combo!


  10. Very pretty bouquet. Love the colors and the bling in the circle.

  11. Ooh I really love this, Colleen! The colors and florals are gorgeous on their own, but I also love the layout with all the yummy sequins. Great faux-shaker!
