Fellow crafters,

Today over at Seize the Birthday we have listened to our faithful

participants and have added this to our challenge…..

It’s an Anything Goes Birthday type of challenge with a “Toppings “ Option!

Remember that a Topping is infact an “Option” and not a requirement!

Because not everyone always wants a cherry on top…now do they??

 So this week your “Toppings” option is

” Monochromatic.”  

If you decide to add a topping to your Birthday card/project it

should exude one particular color of your choice!

Remember you can always add neutrals to your design!

So, Is your Birthday challenge going to be with or without toppings?

It’s your choice!

Hope to see you there!

Here is a link to get you started!

Seize the Birthday!

And my wonderful Team mates!

We had 172 participants last time…I wonder if we can ” Top” that?


I am also linking this up to our sister blog…Seize the Sketch


That’s where I started my layout for my card!  I think I may

have gotten a little carried away with my flowers.

Loved the Sketch though!
