A Birthday Kitty for the Inky Paws Challenge

Hello!  It's Friday- yay!  We had a great first week of summer, full of sunshine, pools, and lots and lots of laughs.  We're off on a day adventure today- I want to take the girls to the beach!  Before we go though, I thought I'd pop on and share my card for this month's Inky Paws Challenge over at Newton's Nook Designs.  It's a color challenge this time around:

Aren't those colors great?  I had fun creating with them- I pulled out the Newton's Birthday Bash set and created this:

Aren't those fun bright colors perfect for a birthday celebration?  So cheerful!  The patterned papers are from the Take Note 6x6 pad by Doodle Bug.  I used a few patterns to decorate my card front and then colored and cut out Newton and his balloon with Copic markers.  I also colored and cut out a hat for him to wear. :)

I stamped my sentiment onto vellum and attached it to my card along with another strip of patterned paper.  I sewed along each side to hold it in place.  Lastly, I embellished with a few white epoxy dots- I thought they looked a little like confetti!

I had fun with this challenge!  I hope you get a chance to play along, too!  Pop over to the Newton's Nook Designs Blog for all the information and to see what the rest of the team did this month!  So fun!!

OK!  Off to the beach!  Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
