I have had this stamp for a time and was looking for the perfect layout. This one spoke to me and here is the result. The color theme is MFT's challenge this week.

I love these little cats. I originally thought I would be using them for my daughter as she has 2 cats kind of sized and colored like these two, but when I saw the birthday sentiment, I thought of a guy who has a birthday soon. By keeping the colors more neutral, I think he will love it. My heart on the sketch became a birthday balloon and the bow secures it.

I love the new card kit. The colors go together so well. The patterned paper is just delightful. I also received this cool twine die cut this week from Pretty Pink Posh, makers of all the beautiful sequins that we use (mine are from the kit). All in all, I am very happy with the way this card turned out.

I love the fact that this sketch allowed for a nice background. I saw this technique on a Jennifer McGuire video. I colored a piece of smooth white cardstock with an ink to paper technique, then taped down the hearts stencil. I spritzed with sheer shimmer mist. Stamped a sentiment from Smitten onto a tag from BP12. Cut a border from BP 6 (I think) and added some stitched lines. A small vellum heart finished my design.

I have been needing quite a few birthday cards of late. When I first looked at this sketch, I was going to pass, since I did not have that die, but then I focused on the horizontal lines and the card took shape. I used 3 different colors of blue ink, but the last two were close in color. Balloons are from Birthday Bears and stamped with Distress Accents. Love the look.

I love the color combination in the polka dot paper from Teresa Collins. I have had it on my desk just waiting for the holidays to pass and a great design to use it on. One of the dots is gray so I used a light gray paper from MFT and stamped it with the lace background stamp also from MFT. The rest of the inks, dies and stamps are also from MFT. This is for a special lady and I hope she likes it.
