You're PURRFECT... Happy Birthday!

Here's a birthday card I made with *Wink *Wink Ink's Catnap stamp. I twisted some craft thread around the kitty's head and paw to make it look like he had been playing with yarn (my kitty LOVES yarn) before his little nap. The sentiment comes from a clear Inkadinkado set I have. I colored "Catnap" with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol (still my number one way of coloring in images). I used the awesome sketch from Truly Scrumptious:

I used the colors from the challenge over at Raspberry Suite

The other challenges I met with this card are:

Your Next Stamp Challenges - Embossing (I don't know whether you can tell or not, but all of the paper circles under the kitty are dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.)
Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday (the inside of my card reads, "Happy Birthday!")
Just Us Girls - Stitching

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment if you have a moment! It's always nice to get some love! :)


  1. cute image! and I love your use of ribbon and wool! Hugs Juls

  2. I love this kitty card! I am partial to kitty cats. Thanks for commenting on some of my digital pages on SCS. I thought galleries were like posts that have a signature line. I tried to edit but it did not let me add my add blog. If you are thinking of digital scrapping you may want to peek at the write-up I did last week. I had no idea I would like digi stuff so much. I have a ton to learn - I'm a pretty un-techie person so blogging and digi scrapping at once is keeping me busy!

  3. Oh, this is such a sweet card Rachael! Your stitched edge looks puuurrfect :) Awesome job combining all these challenges! Thank you so much for playing along with Just Us Girls technique challenge - I hope to see more of your creations in the upcoming challenges!
