Seize the Birthday - Make Your Own Background

This time at Seize the Birthday our topping is Make Your Own Background.  Of course, it's always "Anything Goes" if you don't want to do the topping, as long as it's for a birthday.  So put on your thinking caps.....can't wait to see what everyone creates.

Making my own background is one of my favorite things to do and my second favorite thing is gingham.  I bought two fun sets at PTI called Super Gingham and Chicken Scratch.  I love the beautiful design it made for my background.  The flowers are from two sets called Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2.  The greeting was embossed with Liquid Platinum on Vellum.  

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