Birthday Kitty

Happy FRIDAY, everyone! Today's a sunny, bright spring day here and I'm hoping it will stay that way for the whole weekend. For today's card I got to color with my Copic markers a little bit and had a little fun with some spring colors.

As I was blog surfing the other night, I noticed that Allison's Suggestive Sunday challenge {AFSS8} this week was to use a kitty image. So I immediately knew I needed to use this adorable image Charmaine sent me. It's from the Crafty Kitty collection by Pink Cat Studio. The card is pretty straight forward. I colored the image, giving my Parisian kitty baker a chic soft sky/chocolate chip outfit and added some white polka dots to her apron and chef's hat with my new Signo white gel pen. I cut and embossed the image panel, chocolate chip mat and For Peep's Sake scallop square with my Nestabilities Dies. I then embossed a piece of chocolate chip cardstock with the Swiss Dots CB embossing folder.

The sentiment is from the Wonderful Wishes set, which I punched out with the small oval punch and then framed with SU!'s new Styled Silver hodgepodge hardware and attached with American Crafts ribbon. For the finishing touches, I added some glass baubles to the ribbon, Stardust Stickles to the flowers and kitty's eyelids (LOL!) and then matted the whole thing on a 5 x5" Soft Sky card base.

Have a great day, peeps! :)


  1. Well first of all, you have to know that it was you that got me on the kitties in the first place! Seriously, it was your Sprinkle and Pink Cat cards that made me go buy those for thanks!

    I have this stamp but have yet to break it did a super job with it! (I think I have been just too lazy to color all of it...ha ha!). Thanks for playing!
