Seize The Birthday Challenge - Silver and Gold

Welcome to another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday! And our last challenge for 2014. Wow, where did that year go?

This week we have a fun topping for you to play along with.

Our "Toppings" option this time is...


Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, well.....you can just

stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!

And here is my card.
I have to admit, I found it really hard to photograph this card and capture the colours properly.

Stamps & Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: Distress Inks, glitter paper

Just Add Ink #244 - Sketch Challenge

I cannot believe that this time next week I will be on a plane heading to Vietnam for Christmas! Until then I have a very long to do list (which I'm sure you can all relate to) and about 30 Christmas cards to get made and sent.

For now though, I have a great sketch challenge to share with you, from Just Add Ink. 

For my card I used the cute new polar bear stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.
I kind of made a bit of a contradiction with my greetings thought didn't I. 'Warm Wishes' combined with 'Have a cool day'. Didn't think that out too well! Oh well, it was for my little nephew who I'm sure did not even notice!

Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Inks: Memento black ink
Other: Cardstock from SU!, Misc DSP, Copic Markers
