Seize the Birthday - No Topping

Hello all!

Today starts a new challenge at Seize the Birthday with a new Surprise Party Guest, Anita Bowden from Neat & Crafty. I love her pretty and cheerful CAS card designs!

We have No Toppings option this time, so you can enter any newly created Birthday card!

I've made a shaker card with the Floral Border stamp from The Ton and a coordinating die, which cut the inside of the stamped border.

To start off I stamped the Floral Border stamp on Bristol smooth cardstock. I used Aqua markers to color the stamp in different colors. I spritzed a little bit of clear water on the stamp and stamped it on the paper. After the panel was dry, I stamped the image again in embossing ink with the help of Misti and heat embossed it with clear EP. I then added a bit of colors on the peonies using Zig brush pens.
The shaker window was made with the coordinating die. I cut some fun foam twice and glued it together and a clear acetate underneath the colored panel. I used silver, pink and purple beads as shaker elements and added the green background to finish off the shaker card. The sentiment die cut is from The Ton as well. I added the happy in a banner to complete the sentiment.

That's it from my side. Hope you enjoyed my card! Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my fellow DT members and our Surprise Party Guest Anita!

Happy crafting!
