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 Challenge

Hi friends welcome to our Mid July Seize The Birthday Challenge!
Glenda is hosting this challenge and she is asking for a non neutral color for the card base!
I thought pink and red would go well together and I have a granddaughter who just turned 13...yup another teenager in the family, that leaves ONE boy left (2 years to go for him).
I thought this little lady bug was so cute from the Stamping Village:  Happy Birthday!
I used a background stamp from The Greetery: Painterly Stripes stamped with both pink and red inks.
Thanks Glenda for this challenge to not use our typical white, off white or kraft card base!
So won't you join us and our Special Party Guest Jen from JENerally Speaking and play along with us for a non neutral color for your card base!

 

Heart Hugs,
