Welcome friends to another Seize the Birthday Challenge!
This challenge is brought to us by Vicki and her topping is to use a stencil on our birthday card!
I happened to have a piece of cardstock already stenciled and splattered up just sitting in a box waiting for the right time!  And today is the day!
I used a flower die cut out twice and adhered to the card front.  .
If anyone recognizes this die, let me know the name because I had it on a magnetic sheet and labeled, but realized it was not correct.  So now I do not know where this die came from.
The stencil is from Heidi Swapp:  Chevron
Gina K:  Birthday die
PTI Birthday Cheer:  happy

We have our Special Party Guest is Lorraine, you can find her HERE!
And be sure to check out the other design team members for more inspiration!
See you in the gallery!!

Heart Hugs, friends!

BEAUTIFUL card Colleen!! Your background is SO pretty, and I'm loving the silhouetted flower die cut! (Maybe Memory Box??) Hope you are doing well! Hugs. :0)

Gorgrous card Colleen :-) the background is fabulous! I love the collage effect and the sentiment and silhouette daisies are perfect :-)
As luck would have it, I do know this die, its a Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies Die ;-)

Hope you have a fabulous weekend :-)

Love the stenciled and splattered background, Col! These colors are fantastic and work beautifully with the black die cut flowers and sentiment!

The stenciling works so well with the splatters and I'm loving the black florals and sentiment.

Super card! I do love the color combo and bummer about that die -- I really wanted to see who made it -- I can relate -- I didn't use to label my dies, and I am now sorry!

Barbara said...

I love how y ou just simply added the silohouette flower on this already made background and got a fabulous looking card. My hat off to you!

Nancy said...

Yay for Lorraine to come through for you and know what die that was! This background is awesome and so is your entire card. Don't you just love when something finally gets put to use out of our many piles of extra stuff! Have a wonderful week.

What a sweet looking card! I love the partial stencilling and the itty bitty splatters. I've seen that die before, and I'm glad you know the name now! :)

Ooh, fabulous! I love the splatters and partial zigzag stencilling, and the black die cut flowers and sentiment finish the card off beautifully.

What a fabulous background! Love how you did the stencil and the fabulous splatter. Great backdrop for the flower silhouettes.
