MFT Stamps: Happy Birthday Kitty

Hi there! Today's cute card started with a colorful DCWV paper stack I bought from five years ago. Patterned paper or cardstock that comes in a theme or color coordinated pack makes for a quick background. I used the fun colors from the floral and striped patterns as a base for the rest of the card design.

A blue bird is perched on the tip of My Favorite Things (MFT) script sentiment that has been die-cut from reddish orange glitter paper. On the lower right corner, there is a mischievous orange tabby cat sitting on a shelf while playing with a fish bowl.

The hand-stamped MFT images are colored using Copic Markers before fussy cutting them. Background cardstock are trimmed using stackables and scalloped die cuts from Lawn Fawn.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
