Seize the Birthday - Use a Holiday Stamp for a Birthday

This time at Seize the Birthday the topping is to use a Holiday Stamp for a Birthday.  Of course, it's always "Anything Goes" if you don't want to use the topping, as long as it's for a birthday.

I would like to welcome Tanja Kabel as our Surprise Party Guest for the month of December and January.  Welcome, Tanja!  Please visit her blog and leave some love.

Betsy Veldman was my inspiration for this card.  If fact, it is a CASE of one of her beautiful creations.  The stamp set is called Harvest Berries.  I usually stamp the leaves green and bright red for the berries.  I have always thought of it as a Christmas stamp, but now see that it can be used in many different ways and colors.

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