See what that badge up above says at the top? Yes, I am joining the Seize the Birthday design team! If you're not familiar, Seize the Birthday is a challenge focused specifically on birthdays — because it's always a good idea to have an extra birthday card or two at the ready. The challenge "toppings" are always optional, so if it's birthday-related, it fits.
The challenge starting today is completely ANYTHING GOES — make a birthday card and come play along!
For my card today, I've gone just a little bit snarky... the Seize the Birthday team should know right away who they've added to the team, I figure. ;)
I love how versatile Tim Holtz's crazy dogs, cats and birds can be, and thought this guy's expression went perfectly with that sentiment! The patterned paper seemed to have the appropriate celebratory vibe for a birthday. The pup is watercoloured and of course had some glossy accents added to his eyes and nose, as well as a little sparkle to his collar.
I hope you'll play along and join us!
