Seize the birthday with leaves!

Hi there!

Here I am...  as promised with my first inspiration card as part of the Seize the birthday Design team!

The topping this time, is leaves. A fun little optional if you want to, but you are welcome to link any newly created birthday card, even without using the leaves 'topping' .

For fun, I used die cut leaves , layered over tiny polka dots. I decided to use a neutral color palette instead of seasonal colors, to make it feel more birthday, less Autumn!




Thanks for looking... hope to see you this week at Seize the birthday !

Joe, vrou, en kyk net op watter hoe noot spring jy weg!!!! Dit is pragtig!!! Ek is mal oor daai blare - wat 'n great die en jy het jou blare so slim gebruik - dit lyk lieflik so teen die fyn dotjies en die sagte grys!!! Die helder geel by die grys is natuurlik 'n wenner en jou sentiment lyk stunning!!! Die enamel dots is so perfek geplaas om jou kaartjie mooi af te rond!! Pragtig, vrou!!!!

Groete en 'n heerlike Vrydag vir jou, hoor!!!!

So pretty! Did you glue down those leaves or did you cut them out of adhesive-backed cardstock?
