Happy Birthday, You Party Animal--FM217

July 21, 2015

Today is my Grandson's first birthday!  HAPPY, HAPPY Birthday Robert Joseph!!

My card for today is for the Friday Mashup challenge.  This week the challenge is:

This week's Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with the "Sketch."
  • Create a project with a "Pet theme."
  • or Mash it Up and create a project with "Pets using the Sketch."
Ok, I only have a million stamps sets and can you believe, I don't have any stamps with pets?!?!?  I finally found this funny cat in my Halloween stash.  It worked out perfectly because my sister's birthday is this week and she is a huge cat lover. 

The base card is white and the rest of the paper come from the "Fancy Pants, True Friends"  6 x 6 paper pack.  I cut the stitched border on the turquoise strip with the border from Pretty Pink Posh.   The balloons are paper pieced with matching paper.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle-Party Animal .  It is stamped in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The cat is colored with Copic Markers.  Two candy dots were added for fun.  A black gel pen was used to highlight the eyes, nose and mouth on the cat.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please leave a comment.  I love to hear from you!

Until next time!
