Newton's Birdhouse

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a kitty card!  The image is Newton's Nook - Newton's Birdhouse, and I coloured it with markers and fussy-cut.

I was inspired by the sketch at Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge 183, and I rotated the sketch counter-clockwise:

The sentiment stamp is from Newton's Nook -  Basket of Wishes, which I heat embossed in white.  The bow is from Newton's Nook Pines and Holly Die; I die-cut  the bow twice, once in pink glitter and again in black glitter for a layered look.  The woodgrain patterned paper is from my scrap bin, and I used my Bira punches to make the tag and banners.  I finished the card by adhering a few blue gems.  

I would also like to join the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:

Such lovely take of the sketch, Kitty!! Love how Newton and the birds/birdhouse pop from the blue background! A beautiful palette! Love also the woodgrain paper with the butterflies and the sparkling bow on the top of the tag!
I won a Newton's Nook stamp some time ago, but I won... mice! Lol :D
I still have to ink it, it's a fun stamp but I haven't time to play lately!
Hugs, love and heartfelt thoughts, dear friend!!!
