Seize the Birthday - Soft and Simple

Just a quickie reminder!! Tomorrow you can find me both here and on the Penny Black Blog with my "Fun Fridays with Patti Kehl" feature!  We will be showcasing three "Simply Elegant - Shimmer and Shine" cards. You won't wanna miss this post for two reasons!! 

1.  You'll have another chance to win my BLOG CANDY! (see all the details HERE)
2.  I've  got a couple neat little tricks to give your cards some added shimmer and shine : )




The "toppings" at Seize The Birthday challenge today is for "Soft and Simple"!!



I must apologize for the poor lighting which results in a poor photograph of my card.  Because the lighting is so bad I am going to post a picture of the actual product so you can see the amazing detail in these dies which are designed to layer for the most beautiful dimension.

#51-232 Layered Scene by Penny Black



In keeping with the soft and simple theme I colored the birds only and then added my sentiment in matching ink.

That is it for me - soft and simple! Please consider joining the fun at Seize The Birthday! - if you are not a "Toppings" kind of gal just remember that with Seize The birthday! anything goes ALL THE TIME!  )  Just be sure yours is a Birthday Theme!!  This challenge runs for two weeks so you have plenty of time to enter as many cards as you wish!
