Seize the Birthday Guest Designer



Hi there!  
I'm super excited to announce that I've been invited to be the Surprise Party Guest for Seize the Birthday for July and August!  I've been playing along with STB since 2014 - here's the first time I had a winning card with them.  The design team is fantastic and the fact that you can play with the "Topping" option if you need some inspiration or just create any birthday card makes it so easy to play along.


This week's Topping is Red, White and Blue.  I'm sure plenty of folks will go in a patriotic direction with July 4th coming up.  Its not a holiday here though (we're a British Overseas Territory) so I went for a funky blue sky and a bright red plane instead.



I hope you'll join in the fun!  You have until 9am (PST) on Tuesday, 14 July to play along.

Supplies Used:
Cardstoc:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Plane from Plane Awesome) Taylored Expressions, (Flying by from Flying By, Happy Birthday from Grand Greetings) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Hexagon coverplate) Papertrey Ink, (Flag) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (R35, R46, C1, C3, C7) Copic
Twinery:  (Black) The Twinery
Other:  (Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops) Tonic

Hi Jen, I have been up to my ears in code trying to fix the STB site, so very sorry for my delay in coming by. I love your card and I think the hexagon design for the sky was such a clever idea. I am thrilled that you are with us the next couple of months and I so appreciate your STB support the past 6 years. Take care!
