Seize the Birthday - No Topping

Hello everyone!!! 

A new challenge at Seize the Birthday has started today! This time around we have no Toppings option!!! So you may enter any newly created birthday card into our gallery! 

I created a floral birthday card using one of EunJi's digital stamps. This one is called Botanical Scabiosa. You can see other digital stamps by EunJi at her Etsy shop DotBStamp

I colored the scabiosa flower using Polychromos pencils in blue and purple. I only focused on the folds and left other part white. The darkest shades are colored in dark cold gray and black. I added some sparkle on the image using Crystal Stickles, cut the panel using Distressed Edges die by Spellbinders and then blended green DIs on the bottom part. I chose a light blue cardbase and stamped Freestyle Stripes in Iris Blooms. I foam mounted the colored panel on the cardbase and added the sentiment banner using some foam adhesives onto it. The sentiment is from Dearest Peony. I white heat embossed it on gray cardstock. To finish off I scattered some clear and iridescent sequins.

That's it from me! Hope I could inspire you to play along!

Please don't forget to stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspirations from my team mates and our surprise party guest Becca Cruger!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a happy crafty day!


  1. Your coloring is spectacular as usual!

  2. Fabulous colouring as usual TaeEun and I love the way you use lines of colour to accentuate the folds in the petals, just so detailed and pretty! The background stripes work beautifully with it and the green on the lower part of the topper grounds the flower perfectly, and the colour combination is really lovely. x
