Exciting News and a "Seize the Birthday " Design Team Call

Good morning! We have some exciting changes afoot here at Seize the Birthday! Here is the lowdown!

1. Seize the Birthday will now become an "Anything Goes" Birthday Challenge! The challenges will be open for two weeks and we will still use the voting system! You are welcome to use our past sketches for inspiration and play along as often as you would like!

2. The next piece of exciting news, is that we are opening a sister challenge called "Seize the Sketch"! This challenge will be a weekly "Sketch" challenge and you will be able to make any type of card you wish! Heck, you could even use the sketch and make a birthday card and then link it up to Seize the Birthday! The possibilities are endless!

With the new "Seize the Sketch" challenge starting on Tuesday, August 6th, we will be looking for some new design team members for Seize the Birthday! So I decided to hold an open Design Team Call starting today, from July 8th until July 15th.
