Happy Birthday / MOJO427/Seize The Birthday

Just popping in late today to post a card that I made for one of my daughters who has a December birthday.  As always, I really liked the MOJO 427 sketch and Seize the Birthday had a "toppings" challenge for their card today.  Perfect combo for me. Although snowflakes can be used all winter, this just "screamed"  HOLIDAY stamp to me.

I looked through my stamps and decided on 2 SU's Paper Pumpkin kit stamps, Nov. 2015 and the May 2015. I used my 1 1/4 inch Square Punch after I had stamped the snow with Pool Party and the Snowflake with lost Lagoon. This happens to be one of my favorite color combinations. I just love that Lost Lagoon color. I dry embossed the 4X5 1/4 piece and the 1 1/2 inch piece to add texture.

I thought embossing the Happy Birthday with WOW Silver Embossing Powder would add some extra sparkle along with a rhinestones in the center of each snowflake.  They were also from the Nov. 2015 kit along with the silver snowflake on the inside of the card.  I tried several times adding  Silver Ribbon, but it just wasn't wide enough to do the sentiment circle any justice. Lost Lagoon ribbon won out!

I'm off to make some bread for the week. I just love my Cuisinart Bread Machine. It makes the job  so easy.  I hope you have a great Monday and are able or were able to do something CRAFTY .
