Happy Birthday, Beautiful


Hello, We have a fabulous Topping starting today over at Seize the Birthday. Colleen chose Bouquet, and I think everyone is really going to have fun with this one, I sure did.

I am also joining The Flower Challenge as they asked us to use our Favorite Flower. I have always loved lilies since I was a kid as my mom had them all over the yard. Now, I do too. I love that there are so many variations of colors. I just bought some new Night Lilies this year. They are a deep dark purple and white.

They are still celebrating their 2nd Birthday over at AAA Birthday, congrats to them! So I am linking once again with the fun over there.

Card Details: I had this background waiting on my desk for a few weeks now and wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it. It was made with Oxide inks, white pigment ink, and a Heart stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. I first made the outline stencil from a very old Spellbinders die. The beautiful lily die is from MFT and I just love how they look. The greeting is also MFT and comes from the Birthday Buddies Stamp Set.

Now, come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the rest of the DT’s lovely cards and join us!

Take care, Nanc’
