Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Birthday by the Sea


Hello, It’s time for the next topping over at Seize the Birthday and this time I am your hostess. Before I get to my card I want to say a BIG Welcome to Jules Peddicord! She is joining us today as an official Design Team Member and we couldn’t be more excited! WooHoo! Jules has played along at Seize the Birthday for many, many years and we have long admired her work, so it was just decided it was about time to make her a Design Team Member. Welcome Jules!

Since we are in the middle of summer in my neck of the woods, I chose By the Sea as our topping at STB. I think this topping should really make for a wide variety of possibilities, and I can’t wait to see the gallery!

I needed some masculine cards so I thought this boat would be just perfect. I decided to try to be creative once again with my background and I kinda like the way it came out. Below I will show you the stencil that I used for my water.

Card Details: The stencil is from Taylored Expression and called Go With the Flow. The boat is from Impression Obsession and the sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

Come on over to Seize the Birthday and check out the amazing cards by our Design Team and new teammate! You are certainly going to be inspired! I sure was!

Take care, Nanc’
