Seize the Birthday - Splatters

This time at Seize the Birthday we have a topping of Splatters.  Of course, it is always "Anything Goes" if you don't want to do the topping, as long as it's for a birthday.

Starting with this challenge, we will be adding a new feature to Seize the Birthday.  Each month we will have a Surprise Party Guest joining the team for that month.  We felt it was time to recognize those of you who play along with us week after week.  So, keep playing and you may be our Surprise Party Guest too!

This month we are welcoming Anita from France as our Surprise Party Guest!  Welcome, Anita!  Please visit Anita's blog My Papercraft World to see her beautiful creations!

Here's my card

For my background I started by sponging Distress Inks onto some white card stock.  I love Distress Inks and don't use them nearly enough.  They blend so beautifully.  I picked Fall colors for this card and then added some water splatters and some white and brown paint splatters.  I love the way it turned out.  The leaf and acorn cluster is from a set called Quilted Autumn and the sentiment is from a set called Wonderful Words: Birthday.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our Surprise Party Guest, Anita,  have made for this challenge.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.
