Party Cat

Birdie Brown is celebrating her 2nd birthday and has two challenges this month to celebrate. I love Torico’s images and was lucky recently to have won some money to spend in Etsy stores and bought several of the new images. The one I used on this card is Party Cat, I know a couple of people who adore kitties and would love this as a birthday card.

I chose a sketch from The House That Stamps Built and rotated it to fit the image which has been coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in bright primary colours.

The yellow card blank has been trimmed along the edge with a Fiskars punch leaving the white inside showing as a contrast. The paper is from the Happy Birthday pack by Dovecraft. I used some curling ribbon to cover the join on the paper edge and some funky fibres to which I have attached 2 balloon shaped brads. The sentiment was a freebie and is perfect to go with the image.

Happy 2nd Birthday Birdie Brown, I hope you will be celebrating many more J

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” x 4”
Images – Party Cat by Birdie Brown
Sentiment – Freebie by When The Scrap Hits The Fun
Paper – Birthday pack by Dovecraft
Tools - Letraset Promarkers & Flexmarkers, Fiskars Punch
Embellishments – Curling ribbon, funky fibres, Balloon Shaped brads Dovecraft
Techniques - Punching

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

How, absolutely adorable. Love the image and all the bright colours. I wanted to congratulate you on your win over at the Stamping Chef but didn't have the link to the actual card so I'm just going to leave it here for you. That is two wins of yours I've come across in the same day. You are having a great week!
