Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Goodness this week just melted away. My sister and I have had some fun adventures, had lots of crafty time, watched movies and consumed way too much junk food. I will be sad when I drop her off tomorrow.

We had one heck of a wind storm last night, there is power out all over the island. It is still quite blustery out right now but I hope it moves on before we have to get the ferry tomorrow.

Anyhooo, I played along with Seize the Birthday, which is an anything goes. As we were digging through all my supplies I came across this fun paper.

I used simple layers with foam tape in between, I also ran a piece of vellum through the crimper to give it some texture. I gave the sentiment a ombre look and then heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder.

I finished with some white twine and a double bow.

Supplies: White and blue cardstock, Designer Paper - Gasic Grey, vellum, Hot off the Press - Birthday Cheer, twine.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I like the colors you used with the dsp!

  2. Psht Sis, there is no such thing as "too much" of crafting, sister time, junk food and general lazy-butting around. Its been blissful and I too will be a misty tomorrow when we go our seperate ways. I'm so grateful we get to be in each other's pockets when we craft though. I've had such a lovely time and creating with you has been a joy. We've definately had fun diving into the craft supplies. Your card is impressive, seeing how you pulled together something this lovely from mere scraps! Woot!

  3. super cute card design! Fun papers and the sentiment~
