Celebrating You

 Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week the challenge is: Feature a Creature.

And here is the card I created:
With it being fall and all the fall-themed challenges around, I just had to add some pumpkins and leaves to my card!  I started by stamping the falling leaves in a caramel ink onto kraft card stock.  Then I stamped my pumpkins on scraps of patterned paper, added a little shading with markers and fussy cut them out.  I die cut some leaves out of scraps from the same paper pack.  I inked around the edges of the leaves with the caramel ink to bring them out from the background.  I also stamped, the cat, once onto white card stock and once onto a another scrap from that paper pack so I could cut out the ribbon and add it onto the other image after I had colored it.  I cut out the entire image and added it onto the sentiment panel.  I think this will make a great birthday card or even a just thinking of you card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this challenge.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
