Happy Birthday

This is another of the cards I created when I got a chance to play with the CC Designs stamps I had ordered last month. I just love that little kitty behind the presents. What little kid wouldn't want a stack of presents for their birthday?! This stamp is from the It's My Birthday set. I'll have a card coming up soon with that monkey and the balloon, too.

I think what I love about this set is that it is gender neutral. You can use it to make boy or girl cards just by changing your colors.

I started out by picking my colors for my card. Then, I stamped and cut out my images. I colored them with copic markers. Then, I cut my card base and layers. I assembled the layers (and pierced the holes in my image's mat) and added the ribbon. I added the images using dimensional adhesive. I stamped the sentiment below my ribbon. Last, I added stickles to the cupcake frosting.

The blog hop last night was a blast. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and for all the inspiration on so many of your blogs!

This is really cute, Niki. I like the base color in solid, and the decorative panel in the same color but patterned. And the pink mats really look sharp.
