Happy Monday!
Are you ready for a new challenge at Inky Paws this week?  It's all about birthdays!!!
Newton's Nook has so many fabulous birthday themed products.  You have to be sure to check out their newest release, which contains all the products that I used in my card today.

Starting with that super fun confetti looking stencil, the Bubbly Stencil.  I laid that onto my piece of black cardstock and added a couple of layers on white pigment ink before using Mermaid Lagoon, Fossilized Amber, and Picked Raspberry Oxide inks.  I was hoping the white would help make the colors a little brighter, but it didn't work quite as well as I was hoping.  While the stencil was still in place, I misted the whole thing with some shimmer spray so the bubbles have some sparkle to them.

While the background dried, I worked on coloring up my sweet kitty and balloons from the Newton's Birthday Balloons stamp set.  I colored the kitty like my little Cloud and then tried to match the balloons to colors used in the background.  I coated those with glossy accents once everything was adhered down to my card panel.  Then added a little sentiment banner using one of the sentiments in that same set.

I can't wait to see your super fun birthday cards!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! <37
