Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone,
Today I have the honor to be a Surprise Guest Designer at Seize the Birthday again, yeah!!!! I am super excited to join this talented group of designers again for another challenge: Be sure to come join in the fun, we would love to see your creations!

 Topping option for this challenge is ..... Stencils
Just remember to keep it Birthday Theme! 
If you're not a toppings kinda person, can just stick with the usual "Anything Goes" Birthday! 
Here is my project for the challenge:
For today, I created a pretty birthday card for a friend of mine who has a birthday coming up. I started with some pretty silver shiny paper for my base. The base layer is spritzed with Story Night Glimmer Mist which my sweet friend, Shelly sent me and I love it!
Such a pretty, shimmery color.
On the background, I used the metallic silver embossing paste through a Simon Says stencil called Balloon & Patterns Stencils. The gorgeous butterflies are from a Heidi Swapp stencil which I again used the embossing paste for some fun texture. After the butterflies dried, I fussy cut out and added  gems to the center.
The middle panel is layered in place.  I tied Aqua Blue crinkle ribbon which I won from my friend, Diana at DL.ART a while ago in a challenge. It matches perfectly...I love it!  The sentiment is Jaded Blossoms Party Animal stamp set.
Be sure to stop over at Seize the Birthday and check out what the amazing DT has created for you and then come back and join in the challenge~we'd love to see what you create!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) DL.ART November Linky challenge
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge #273 Freestyle
