Make Your Own Background



Hi Friends, It’s Thursday so that means it’s time for another great challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  Our topping this time around if you choose to use it, is to make your own background.  I had a great time making this card, and yes there is a however coming,  I think the leaves look terrible, but I loved the way the flowers came out and didn’t want to risk changing it. Anyhow, you can’t love them all, now can we?  The flowers, leaves, and dots are from the Verve- Poppy Birthday set.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I used my SU watercolored brush for this card. I really love that thing!  What a great invention, if you ask me.

Now, you have to go over to STB and see what my Wonderful and ohhhhh soooooo talented Teammates did with this challenge. WOWZA! While your there, PLEASE join us and remember if you don’t want to use the topping you don’t have to because we are ALWAYS celebrating Birthdays!  See you over there! Nancy

I am also linking this card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where they have an Anything Goes challenge starting!
