regal red

I was over the moon when I saw JoAnn's theme for this week's Seize the Birthday challenge.  It's RED! It's my favourite colour. I went very CAS so the red would shine - the splotches remind me a bit of flower petals.  The sentiment is one I love but haven't used it for a while. Hope you like what I've come up with.

Be sure to check out the blog to see the rest of the design team creations as well as our Surprise Guest Designer, Deborah Wheeler .
