Birthday Kitty Kat....

Afternoon all,

Well its my step-daughters birthday this week so I thought I'd make a cute card.  I had a a decoupage kit from Milton and Co so I thought I'd have a go.

I had a look at some of the challenges for some inspiration and came across 2 that I thought were perfect to help me design the card.

The first was Flat friends challenge which gave me the colour combo of Pink, Grey and Black which I know she would love.  The second was Mojo Monday on the sketch of Round or Square.

First I cut out the Kitty image with a circle die and my big shot.  Then I cut out by hand extra feet and head, body and cake, then an extra head and arm and finally an extra flower.  Then I cut out with a larger circle die some of my Stampin up Melon Mango (pink) card to border the Kitty.  See below

I then chose  Grey glittery card I had from my stock as the basis for the card and use the sketch to make the card. The Black was incorporated in the Stampin up Ribbon and the Sentiment.

Hope you like it I think it is very cute..

 Inside the card I added some white card with some Mango Melon to give it a bit of detail.

Card recipe:
Kitty - Milton & Co
Card - Mango Melon, Grey & white from card stock
Stampin up Ribbon (Retired)
Sentiment: LOTV
Stampin up polka dots
