Seize the Birthday Surprise Party Guest - Stripe it up!

Hello Everyone,

I'm so thrilled to be back with my another project for Seize the Birthday as their "Surprise Party Guest".  

This is what I've created for the current topping "Stripe It Up".

All "Seize the Birthday" Challenges are "Anything Goes", with an optional topping for those who want to try something different. And for the next two weeks, the topping is Stripe it up.

To make this card, I took A2 size white Card base and stenciled  it using STAMPlorations Plaid Maker stencil to make the striped background and then I  ink blended it along the edges to add some interest.

Meanwhile, I stamped these cute image from MFT - It's Mice time to Celebrate stamp set  designed by Stacey Yacula. I colored these image using Alcohol Markers and fussy cut it. 

I adhered these fussy cut images using foam tape and stamped the sentiment. And finally added some gemstones to complete this cute Birthday card.

I hope you get inspired and will join us with your Birthday card in the gallery, with or without the topping.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
