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.

Here's my card

This was a fun and easy card to do.  Melanie Muenchinger had a video a while back called Faux Paper Piecing.  This is using her Inspiration Mosaic frame stamp.  The idea is to stamp the frame onto patterned paper and then color sections of it with alcohol markers to give the impression that it has been paper pieced.  I then added a birthday greeting, a fun flower and some enamel dots.  I love how it turned out and the pretty color combo.

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