Seize the Day!

A quick card for today to help boost your Christmas spirit!  Inspired by Annette's recent The Alley Way Stamps BE Inspired card and created using Priceless Joy and Jolly Holiday with a Christmas Magic sentiment.  Perfect for Just Add Inks Just Add Christmas Challenge!

Have you seen the new Seize the Birthday Birthday Card Challenge blog?  I don't know about you but I never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash - I can't wait til their first challenge begins on January 10th.  I created this birthday card to celebrate their Linky Party using The Alley Way Stamps Love Knots and sentiment created from Jibber Jabber and Bite Size.  The Love Knots background was swiped with Distressed Ink Picked Raspberry across the bottom half and Dusty Concord across the top, then spritzed with Glimmermist Denim, before stamping onto some baby pink Basic Grey paper.  The Spellbinders and My Favourite Things butterflies were diecut and the sentiment stamped in Dusty Concord before dry embossing with Tim Holtz Woodgrain, and pop dotting of course :)


  1. these cards are have such a great style and it is so inspiring.. :)

  2. I so love that car :) And how cool does it look with the trees? That's a fab mix of butterflies, too - with all the butterfly stuff I HAD TO HAVE am I ever glad they are never-ever-ever going to be out of style :)

    If it wasn't so hot here where I live I'd love to pop a real tree on my car to take home.
