Seize the Birthday - Water

This time at Seize the Birthday our topping is Water.  Of course, it's always "Anything Goes" if you don't want to do the topping as long as it's for a birthday.

We have two new designers joining the Seize the Birthday team this week.  I would like to welcome Barbara Campbell and Vicki Dutcher.  They have both been around blogland for awhile, so I'm sure you will recognize their work.  Please visit their blogs and leave some love.

We will be saying goodbye to our Surprise Party Guest, Jacquie, with the completion of this challenge.  Thanks so much, Jacquie, for sharing your wonderful talent with us!

I decided to make a water scene for this challenge.  Isn't this fun!  I stamped the sand using a stamp from Impression Obsession.  I masked it off and then sponged the water using Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers.  The submarine, which just had to be yellow, is from Reverse Confetti. The other cute little elements are from Lawn Fawn.  I used some PTI Rainstones as the bubbles for the fish.  The birthday greeting on the inside says Make a Wish, Blow Out the Candles, Eat Cake & Celebrate.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest, Jacquie,  have made.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.
