January Stamp of the Month in Seize the Birthday #3 Challenge

This card was made for a special young lady who loves the color purple.  I used the Seize the Birthday #3 sketch and Close to My Heart's Happy Valentines Stamp of the Month for the focal image.  The card is 5 x 6.5".  The checkered background paper is Petal from the Winter Cozy Background & Texture Paper pack (retired CTMH).  The banner was cut using the Artiste cartridge (pg. 35, Accent 1 cut at 1.25") and stamped with the Happy Birthday stamp that comes with the Artiste collection so it matches the shape perfectly!  It was also colored with a Petal marker.  The centered white panel was dry embossed with the Divine Swirl embossing folder with my Cuttlebug machine.  The roses were stamped in Black ink and colored using Petal and Sweet Leaf markers.  As a finishing touch I used a fine point Martha Stewart Glue Writing Pen to outline the roses and then applied Prisma Glitter.  The Happy Birthday greeting on the banner also received the glue pen and prisma glitter treatment.

Here is the Seize the Birthday Sketch:

I'm also linking this card up to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge--all that glitters.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
