Seize the Birthday

Hello everyone! 
Today I have an exciting news and one card to share with you :)! 
I'm joining the design team of Seize the Birthday challenge. I was so excited when Nancy from STB contacted me and of course I said yes :)! 

Today's card is my first project as a DT member at Seize the Birthday
The topping for the next two weeks is "Lots of Leaves". As always you can link up any newly created birthday card in our gallery! 

For this challenge I went with a CAS design. 

The stamps I used for this card are from the Wagon of Wishes stamp set by Newton's Nook. At first I stamped the pile of leaves on the center of my front panel, masked it off and then stemped the presents and wagon in Memento black to color them with Copic markers. To frame the image I embossed two stitched circles using SSS dies. The front panel was trimmed down a bit and foam mounted on the card base on which I adhered some shimmery silver cardstock. The sentiment was silver heat embossed on some hot pink cardstock, cut and added on the card using some foam adhesive.
To finish off I added clear WOS on the leaves and Glossy Accents here the there.

I hope I could inspire you to play along with my card. Our surprise party guest Sherrie Koning from Sherrie Scraps and other DT ladies have awesome projects on the STB blog! Hop over and let them inspire you!

Thank you so much for visiting!
Have a beautiful day!
