Seize the Birthday - No Topping

This time at Seize the Birthday there is no topping.  As always, it's "Anything Goes" as long as it's for a birthday, so put on your thinking caps and create something beautiful!

Here's my card

The beautiful French Lilac image is from Power Poppy.  I love lilacs!  They are beautiful to look at and smell wonderful.  The patterned paper is from my stash, and I covered it with a piece of vellum to soften the look.  I used a delicate Spellbinders die and colored the image with Copic markers.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made this time.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.
