Birdhouse Kitty Birthday

Here's a birthday card I made today.  

I started by covering a white card base with grey cardstock and a doily and stamping the sentiment in black.  I coloured the cute kitty image with pencils, mounted on brown cardstock and then a torn piece of pink cardstock.  I also rounded the corners as I was going along.  I affixed a piece of pink polka-dot ribbon and affixed the mounted image to the card.  Lastly I embellished with a die-cut bird and lots of bling.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digistamp:  Bugaboo Digi Stamps - Garden Cat - Mischief
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Dollarama)
  • Cardstock:  Bazzill and Recollections
  • Doily:  Distinction by Lapaco
  • Die:  Memory Box Resting Birds
  • Bling:  Recollections and Kaisercraft
  • Ribbon:  Dollarama
