Seize the Birthday - Monochromatic

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! Hope you are enjoying the time with your family! 

My card for today is not a Thanksgiving card but a birthday card :), as it's Seize the Birthday Thursday today! This challenge is the last one this year. 

The Toppings option for our last challenge in 2017 is MONOCHROMATIC
I chose purple for my card.

I white heat embossed the Rose Close Up cling background stamp from The Ton on a watercolor paper and colored it using Wisteria and Orchid Color Burst. I cut it using the biggest Double Stitched Rectangle die and die cut "happy" with Birthday word die (The Ton) from the panel. I adhered the panel on a white cardbase and popped up the "happy" die cut on a purple fun foam die cut. I stamped "Birthday "from Mountains stamp set from The Ton in Grape Crush on a strip of white cardstock and added it onto the card embellished with a thin strip of purple glitter tape. I finished off the card by adding some sequins from Royal Garden Party and Glass Slippers.

I love purple and how this card turned out :)! Hope you like it too!

Have a wonderful day!
