Seize the Birthday - Faux or Real Stitching

Welcome to a new Seize the Birthday Challenge!

Seize the Birthday is always "Anything Goes" as long as it's birthday,  but this week we have a "topping" of Faux or Real Stitching.

Here's my card

I have just started buying some stitched dies, and love the look.  It just adds a little something extra on the edge.  I used a stamp set from Flourishes called Pinwheels & Popsicles for this yummy cake image and the sentiment.  Of course, I had to make the cake chocolate!

Lil' Inkers Stitched Circles & Rectangles dies
Verve Pennant Trim die
Crate Paper & Paper Pizazz patterned paper

Please visit the Seize the Birthday page to see the wonderful cards the rest of the team have made this week. I hope you will be inspired to join us.  We would love to see what you create!
