Seize the Birthday - No Topping

Hello again! 

I'm popping in to share a birthday card with you! The first challenge of the year at Seize the Birthday is now live. And we have no toppings option this time around! It's good for warming up, right :) ?

No Topping

My card is featuring Bouquet Rose Fussy Cut stamp set, one of EunJi's digital stamps. 

I printed the image on a mixed media paper and colored it using Inktense colored pencils. I colored the darkest tone first and blended it out using a damp brush. After done with coloring I cut the panel, along the outline of the image on the right side and foam mounted it on the red cardbase. The sentiment from Summer Blooms set by The Ton was gold heat embossed on some vellum. I cut the vellum in a banner and glued it onto the card. To finish off I added a yellow rhinestone on the sentiment banner. 

That's it from me! Hope you'll play along!

Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our new surprise party guest Kristie Goulet! I'm sure you all already know her blog full of her gorgeous creations, Kreative Kristie!

Thank you for looking!

Beautiful card TaeEun and your coloring is fabulous. I love the way you fussy cut around the edge of the image. Very creative.
Happy New Year.

This Eunji rose image is beautiful TaeEun and love the colouring with Inktense Pencils and cutting round the edge of the flowers with the dark red border showing underneath is so striking and pretty, and balanced out by the red panel on the front. x
