Seize the Birthday Challenge #1



Popping in with a card for the 1st official challenge at Seize the Birthday!
My son and my brother's youngest daughter were born 6 weeks apart, so my niece will be celebrating her 18th birthday in February.  How is this for getting ahead?

Here is the sketch to follow for this week's challenge. I gave the sketch a crank to the left to make this colourful girlie card.



All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Raspberry Fizz
Patterned Paper: Raspberry Fizz and Orange Zest Patterned Paper Packs
Stamps: By the Numbers, Make a Wish Additions
Ink:  Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest
Dies: Limitless Layers Hearts
other: gemstones (Kaisercraft)
