Seize the Birthday Surprise Party Guest

That's right, folks, you get not one - but TWO - lovely postings from me today. 

That's because I'm the Surprise Party Guest for Seize the Birthday's latest challenge. 

I'm so thrilled to be playing along with their uber talented team again. 

For the "toppings" this go round, they want you to create a card using a kraft base. But don't worry, if you don't feel like getting krafty, you can just create ANY kind of card with a birthday theme and still link up. 

I wanted to play with my new Feathery stamp set from STAMPlorations (available for 20% off in the STAMPstore by using code STAMPGIRLBECCA) so I pulled out a sheet of vellum and got to embossing. 

To give my kraft background a little pop of texture and dimension, I used some Ranger Texture Paste through a Winnie & Walter stencil. 

I loved the sketch put out by CAS Colors and Sketches this week and used the heck out of it. 

Taaadaaaa here's my full card.

I'm also going to play along at:
Crafty Gals Corner - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - anything goes

Thanks for popping by! Now go check out the rest of the awesome creators over at Seize the Birthday!
