MFT Color Challenge 46 - Happy Purr-thday!

Happy Purr-thday to all the June babies out there.  This card is for you and for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge #46. 

These are the colours I had to work with. You can find out more about the MFT color challenge by clicking the banner below.

I love the MFT Cool Cat stamp. Each cat is so unique and has their own personality. My goal is to use each cat on a different card so I had to feature one on this card. Here is the design...

To create this simple card, I die cut the light blue and ivory cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Large stitched rectangle die. Then I used 2 of the MFT Die-namics Stitched Circle dies to create the inlay and propped the top light blue cardstock with foam to give it some dimension. Then, I stamped out the images with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. 

I love using glossy accents because it makes the image pop. I used it on the party hat, the top of the cake, the trim of the pillow and the cat's nose, ears, paws and tail. Then I finished the cat by darkening its eyes, whiskers and smile with the Sakura gelly roll pen. The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black ink and embossed on a kraft colour rectangle stitched cardstock that was die cut from the smallest SimonSaysStamp stitched rectangle die set. Lastly, I used the confetti die on the same colour cardstock used throughout the card to sprinkle some stars, dots and sequins. 

That's it.... easy eh?
