SEIZE THE BIRTHDAY ~ BLUE & GRAY

Hi friends, welcome to the first SEIZE THE BIRTHDAY Challenge of the NEW YEAR 2022

I am hosting the challenge this month and decided my topping would be a BLUE and GRAY color challenge.  As always you are free to make any kind of BIRTHDAY card if you don't want to use the toppings!


I invite you to check out the design team and our Special Party Guest Vicky from Crafting Inspiration 
for this challenge!
 
This is what I used:
Gina K:  Fearless Joy stamps & dies
PTI: soft stone paper
The Greetery: Crimped frame
The Greetery:  Sentiment Suite Birthday
Spellbinders:  Glimmer Essential Duo Lines Rectangle
Catherine Pooler Ink:  twilight, something borrowed, it's a boy
 
 
See you in the gallery!



Heart Hugs, friends!

  2. What a beauty this is Colleen! I love the vase of flowers bursting out of frame and the way you used different blues to bring your blooms to life. Your blue and grey colour choice really inspired me to start creating again after the holidays so thank you for that, and thanks for having me to play at STB! Vicky x
