Seize the Birthday!

I finally did a Seize the Birthday challenge on time!  And I like my card pretty well, lookie:

I was inspired to grab Fabulous Florets by this beautiful card by Marleygo that I saw last week on Splitcoast, though I'm not sure I'd consider this an out-and-out CASE.  Still, she did inspire me so I wanted to give credit.  And hey look, two cards in a row with the Top Note die!  Just a coincidence; this week's Seize the Birthday sketch also featured it:

Ok, so I did alter the sketch slightly to make it a standard A2 card instead of square, but the rest of the sketch is pretty spot-on.  And I didn't add brads to yesterday's card, but this time I did.  It seemed to need a bit more Daffodil Delight on that side.  The fun and sunny color combo is from Create with Connie and Mary:

Glad I got a new pack of Melon Mambo cardstock, what with the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP I used quite a bit of Melon Mambo making swaps a while back.  That's okay though, bright colors cheer me up, especially when we've had a lot of overcast skies here lately.  It keeps trying to snow but doesn't get very far, but it's still cold, so I drink a lot of tea ;)

Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies (all SU!):
Stamps:  Fabulous Florets, Curly Cute (seriously, what did I do before I got this stamp set?)
Ink:  Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Paper:  Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP
Accessories:  Top Note die, Brights brads
