Seize the Birthday #1

Hello again blogger friends!  It's almost midnight, but I want to get the cards posted that I finished yesterday so this is my second post of the night.  I had time to play with the very first Seize the Birthday challenge, which was to make a feminine card with the above sketch.  I used the same Doodlebug patterned paper which is in their new Valentine collection.  I thought it would make a pretty birthday card, so that's what I made.  I added a bit of ribbon, some dry embossing, a little stamping with the Delicate Doilies 2 and Fancy Sentiments from the IBS store Then I decided to add a lot of little red Doodlebug pearls.   I love it!

I'm looking forward to building up my birthday card stash with this challenge.  Thanks, Lesley!
