Seize the Birthday #5

Here's my card for this week's Seize the Birthday#5 feminine card challenge. I used all SU! products for my card. I added a hodgepodge hardware vanilla brad to the center. Quick & easy, and I really like how this turned out!

We dodged Mother Nature this time and only got about an inch or two of snow. The winds picked up, but the sun is out and will melt most of this snow I'm sure. I hope our friends up north in new England are faring well after being dumped on with this snowstorm!

Stay warm, and thanks for stopping by!

What a wonderful card. Feminine, yet not too "girly". Sweet medallion and I love how you've used embossing on the bottom half, and my favorite, polka dots on the top! Super. Bev

I love your choice of colors. I wouldn't have headed to blues for a feminine card but it's perfect - the polka dots, embossed flowers and detail on the blue flower seem even more feminine!

That flower just pops Carol!! I love the embossed base and the flagged sentiment shooting out from the flower. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!

Love this card, Carol. The paper and the embossing seem to go so well together and I love that center brad also. Just got power back around 5:43 tonight. Lost is last night at 9:15pm. A lot of people are still out and it is going down to 9 degrees tonight. We got about 28 inches but some drifts in out yard are well over 4 feet. I could not even get through them at all. I only did a very little bit of shoveling, but that was enough for my back. Sitting down for the night with my heating pad. Talk soon. Big Hugs,
Donna

very pretty Carol, I really like that medallion, it really pops out on your card. Did you heat emboss that with white embossing powder?

Oh, that's a beautiful flower AND card. I love the simple design, too.
I'm surprised you didn't get more snow. I thought I was going to find some nice snow photos when I came to your blog.
