Thursday means it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
Our optional "topping" this time around is VIBRANT COLOURS. This is not a huge challenge for me; as I looked through my cards for Seize the Birthday so far, most of them are nice and bright. But if you're not as fond of bold colours, our toppings are always optional — as long as it's a birthday card, come and link up with us!
Another thing I noticed as I looked through my first few months with Seize the Birthday... I haven't done any cat birthday cards! I thought I should rectify that oversight:
I did think I'd make my own background, and went to work with stencil, embossing paste and some watercolour powders. I was less than thrilled with the result. Second option — patterned paper! It's hard to beat this particular design for vibrant colours. For that reason, I kept my kitty colouring to gentle greys as contrast, apart from the bright pink collar. The flip side of the paper is navy, so I used a scrap of that for the sentiment banner.
That card was so easy, I decided to make another!
I went portrait layout for this one. This part of the paper isn't quite as bold as the first section I used, so I decided I could go with a vibrant cat this time. A big happy and a white embossed birthday on black completed the card.
With the colours and the die cut sentiment, I'm adding this to the current Just Us Girls word week challenge: BOLD.
I hope you'll join us!
