Seize the Birthday - Flowers

It's Thursday so it's time for another two week Seize the Birthday Challenge!  Seize the Birthday is always "anything goes" as long as it's birthday, but this time we have a topping of flowers.  If toppings aren't your thing, you don't have to use it.  It's just an option.

Here's my card

The days are getting warmer, and everything is starting to green up and grow again.  I can't wait for the garden to start showing some of its gorgeous colors.  Unfortunately, I don't have Azaleas in my garden, so I will have to enjoy their beautiful colors in the cards I make.  I just bought this gorgeous stamp set from Power Poppy called Azalea, so I am definitely a topping kind of gal this week!  This is such a pretty set, and it was a lot of fun to color.  I colored it with Copic markers.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday page to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made this week.  I hope you will be inspired and want to come and play along with us.  We would love to see what you create!
