Seize the Birthday #156

I don't make resolutions but I sometimes plan to do something better or more than the year before.  One thing I want to do is play at Seize the Birthday more often.  I do make a LOT of birthday cards but don't think to add them to their gallery.  So here's my first card of the new year for STB.
Their twist is confetti so I filled my card with it.  I inked the paper with Distress Inks, clear heat embossed the confetti and streamers and went over it all with Black Soot. 

I'm so glad you dropped by.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here.

Stamps:  Winnie and Walter (confetti), Mama Elephant (sentiment)
Die:  MFT
Paper:  PTI, Strathmore Bristol
Inks: Distress, Altenew


  1. Now that's a great New Year's resolution, and a great card to start that resolution off! I love the black soot di over all those fabulously bright colors. You've got a plethora of such happy colors and they really make this a fun birthday card. Bev

  2. This is a party on a card! Your colors and design are both festive and full of fun!

    1. Forgot to tell you those butterfly & doily papers I used are from an old MME collection.

  3. Again you rocked the brief, Bobby, my little Challenge champion!! I love how you covered your entire card front with confetti! That bold rainbow sediment is the only one that could have handled that background! This is one festive card!! Hugs, Darnell
