Thanks, Congrats and an Awesome Challenge!

First I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to the DT at Seize the Birthday for
choosing this card as the one to 'take the cake' in last week's challenge.
I'd also like to say CONGRATS to the ladies who received 'birthday honors'.

Now onto this week's challenge at Seize the Birthday
"Black and White and One More Color"
This is one of my favorite combos.

The background was made using the Mod Squared Stencil from 
Catherine Pooler Designs and some embossing paste from Dreamweaver.
The flower stamp and ink are also from Catherine Pooler Designs.
The stamp set is called Giggles and was stamped using first and second generation stamping.
The ink color is called Flirty Fuchsia.
The tags are from CAS-ual Fridays Tag Buddies Fri-Dies. I used the 'direct 
to paper' technique to color the purple one. 
The sentiment is from a fun set designed by CAS-ual Fridays for 
Catherine Pooler's Young At Heart collection.

This is such a classic and fun color combo.

Happy Stampin'

Wonderful job with those SOA supplies! I'm with you on the B+W+1. The fewer the choices, the better things seem to turn out. Thanks for the reminder of the Seize the Birthday challenge, too. A few family BDays coming up that I need to prepare for.

Really love how the fuchsia pops on all that white with a little black! Also the background with the embossing paste! Very cool looking card!
