Seize The Birthday - Monochromatic Orange...and an announcement.

Hi!  The new 2-week challenge at Seize The Birthday is up already.  Our Toppings option is Monochromatic Orange.  As always, the Topping is optional.  Anything long as it's a birthday card, of course!
This will be my last challenge with the wonderful Design Team at Seize The Birthday.  I'll miss these ladies, for sure!  But, life has gotten so busy (lots of good stuff, mind you) that I have to free up some time.  So, I've decided to step down from the team.  I'm sure you'll see me playing along whenever I have a chance, though.
Thank you Lesley, Nancy and all of the DT for all the support and friendship!

Well now.  On to my card, right???

I used 3 shades of orange ink to create this Ikat design.  I've had this stamp set for a while, but it's not seen much ink.  This card was my 2nd attempt.  I tried to do some random stamping on the first one, but it just wasn't working.  So, I decided to keep it simple on this card and I like it so much better!  The sentiment is stamped on a narrow strip (in Vintage Sepia) and popped up with foam tape.
That's about it!

Thanks for stopping by.  And..thank you to all of the team at Seize The Birthday!!!

Supplies ~
card stock: white (Recollections)
ink: pumpkin pie, tangerine tango, peach parfait (SU), vintage sepia (Versafine)
stamps: borders and backgrounds (WPlus9), boutique borders birthdays (PTI)


  1. Super cute, Susie! I need to practice monochromatic coloring...and I hope I could only do it half as good as this!

  2. Super CAS design...thanks for being so fabulous to work with! Hope to keep in touch! HUGS!

  3. I just love the design of this card Susie! And so sad that you are leaving the DT, but I look forward to still seeing your gorgeous creations :)
