Anything Birthday Goes at Seize the Birthday!


It's a Seize the Birthday Thursday! And it's one of those weeks when truly "anything goes": no optional toppings on this cake, just make a birthday card and link it up with us. 
With no limits, at first I was going to go with a music theme; then floral... and when I finally had the time to make the card, cats came out again. 


This panel was coloured last fall for one of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Colouring Challenges. It was the only one I didn't make into a card or tag at the same time; and as it's taken me until now to use it, you may understand why I chose to not just colour, but make finished projects as well. But here it is now! I stamped and embossed the sentiment with sparkly embossing powder, then cut the panel to size so I could mat it and add a coloured card base. (I can't believe I don't own this group cat stamp yet; must correct that soon!) 
Hey look, It's Anything Goes time at Simon Says Stamp, so I'm linking my card there. 
The rest of the Seize the Birthday design team, along with our current surprise party guest Kim, have a complete range of birthday cards to inspire you!  


Supplies: black & gold cardstock, Juie's bristol paper, Mama Elephant The Cat's Meow & A Muse Studio Birthday Greetings stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts sparkle clear embossing powder, Zig watercolour markers

A terrific schparkly sediment being sung by a dynamite cat choir! Not everyone gets such magnificent attention, so you are going to make someone feel VERY special with this card, Lindsey!! Hugs, Darnell

Totally fun and adorable card! Love the minimal coloring - I've often seen this image completely colored, so this is a refreshing change. Glad you switched over from music and flowers to this!! :)
hugs, Ashwini

to make a decision on what to do, that's the trouble when given almost free rein, What a fun card and you know you had me at "cats". Love, love, love it.

Lindsey this is so cute, love this fun stamp and you made the colouring of it seem so much less intimidating!

Glad that you were able to use this for a card finally. I am just now doing the same thing that you did. Taking all of the coloring projects and making them into usable cards. I have a lot. I love you colored some of them completely and left other with just a little bit. What a fun crowd of cats.
