Seize the Birthday - One Layer

Hello again and happy Thursday! 

Today is the Seize the Birthday Thursday :)! Our Toppings option for the next fortnight is 


As always you may enter any birthday project if you want to! 

I took the Toppings option and made a one layer card. 

I created a DIY stamped background using Frosted Garden from Altenew. I stamped the flowers using Red Cosmos mini inks. I dabbed the darker red on the area of the stamp where I want to have darker shade using finger dauber and stamped it again with the help of MISTI. The leaves were stamped using Rock collection mini inks. I added the black stamen using a black glaze pen. The sentiment is from Painted Greetings set also by Altenew. I stamped it with a black pigment ink and clear heat embossed it. To add some golden accents I adhered a strip of washi tape and scattered some sequins from Medallion Gold mix by The Ton. To finish off I covered the flowers with WOS clear glitter. 

One layer card isn't everyone's favorite but sometimes we need something challenging us, right :)?
It was definitely a pleasure for me to make this one! Hope you'll give it a try too!

Please stop by  Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our Surprise Party Guest Kristie Goulet!
