Seize the Birthday 200th Challenge with PRIZES!

We have a special challenge for you today.  
Seize the Birthday is celebrating its 200th challenge.  Woohoo!  
We are so grateful to all of you that have helped us reach this milestone. 

MAKE SURE you read the entire post so you will understand the rules for this challenge! 

So for this challenge, I ( Nancy) am offering ...
2 Twenty-Five Dollar Simon Says Gift Certificates 
to both of our Top Winners. 

And to add to the fun... we have 4 Mystery Design Team Members that have prizes up for grabs on their blogs.  However, the requirement to win ANY of those prizes is, you must go to ALL of the Design Team's blog and leave each one of them some love! We all need a little love in our lives these days.
Also for your post, we are asking you to explain how exactly you were inspired by our graphic!

So you have 6 chances to WIN!


Let me explain our topping. 
 For this challenge we want you to make a card and/or project that is inspired by the graphic below.  Whether it be the colors, the balloons, the watercolor vibe, or the numbers, etc. Whatever sparks your creativity. 
 Remember for this challenge only, we are asking you to explain in your post how exactly you were inspired!

  Our "Topping"


So we are NOT having an option of Anything Goes
 for this challenge only!  

Surprise Party Guest

The Design Team

  1. Congratulations on reaching this fabulous milestone. After seeing the winner's post earlier today, I vouched I would try and play along more regularly, and this special challenge is a great incentive to get into the groove again. Thanks for all of the inspiration and for the chance to win some prizes as well.
