silver and gold. . . .

is always a pretty combination.  Here is a birthday card I made for my daughter-in-law:

The papers I used are from the Teresa Collins Studio Gold 6x6 paper pad  which is just gorgeous.  The silver strip across the bottom was sent to me by Char in a Secret Santa swap.  I used one of the dies from MFT's Blueprints #1 to cut that strip.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the SSS Birthday Messages.   The large snowflake is an Impression Obsession die and the small one was gifted to me.  The sequins are a combination of Pretty Pink Posh and some from Michael's, too.

Here are the challenges I am entering:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  anything goes.

Seize the Birthday:  silver and gold as toppings.

Word Art Wednesday:  anything goes.
