Birthday Wishes


Today I'm playing along with Seize The Birthday Challenge :) I skipped the toppings this time around and just went with the "Anything Goes Birthday" option ;)

Here's my card:

This is a new-to-me stamp set from Stampin' Up called Sea Turtle. I absolutely LOVE sea turtles!!! I think they are such magical creatures and I literally squeal with delight every single time we encounter them on snorkeling adventures!!!

My sister-in-law is also a huge fan of anything ocean or beach related. She's about to turn 60 later this week, so I just dropped this in the snail mail for her. I hope she likes it!

I had so much fun making this card that I made a second version too...

On this one I used a darker solid background panel and some Halo embossing powder (WOW! inspired by...Catherine Pooler) on the bubbles. The iridescent sparkle is so fabulous in person!!!


Thanks so much for visiting!

Have a wonderful week!!!

  1. I'm giggling thinking of the sound of your squeals coming out of your snorkel!! This is fun, Lisa and your sister-in-law will enjoy it!

  2. Lisa, Your card certainly caught my attention right away as I love sea turtles and just returned from Hawaii where I got to snorkel right next to many. Talk about fun and something I had never experienced before. Your gorgeous card makes me yearning to go back. Awesome job! Thanks for putting a smile on my face this morning and for joining us at Seize the Birthday.
