Update: This card entry won the Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #22 Birthday Theme and claimed the title "Inky Paws Top Picks!"
Today I'm here to share a birthday card I made for Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge #22: Birthday Theme and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Furry Friends. I will be giving this card to a friend daughter's 6th birthday. The color palette came from the party décor that her mom will be using to decorate her party. It's pink/red with gray. I also included a cat in the birthday card because they have a family cat name Mia. She is just the cutest and sweetest little cat. I attempted to make the cat resemble Mia and I think I came pretty close. ;)
I started the card by stamping the cat from Newton's Birthday Bash set. I also stamped 4 balloons from Winston's Birthday set and another different balloon from Delightful Doxie set. These images were colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut.
I die-cut the scalloped frame in gray cardstock using Mama Elephant Femme Frames. All the stitched rectangles were die-cut using Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangles Stackables. I created a window frame on the white stitched panel using a smaller rectangle die. Then I black heat embossed all the strings from Winston's Birthday set onto the vellum sheet and adhered all the images to its place.
I assembled all the panels onto the card base. The sentiment was black heat embossed on a fishtail banner that I hand cut. I finished the card off with some glossy accents on the balloons and scattered some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
I hope you were inspired by today's card! Thanks again for stopping in! Wishing you all a fabulous day! And don't forget to check back this Friday for my special post for SpiegelMom Scraps 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Party! There will be a ton of inspirations, challenges, and of course, prizes!!!
