Tweet Birthday Gift

Hi everyone! Are you crafting this weekend!?! I'm hoping to create a couple cards and get some scrapbooking done. Today I'm playing along with the December Free Stamp of the Month Challenge at Delightful Inspiration. The beautiful image is the Tweet Birthday Gift digital stamp by Designed2Delight.

My card base is Blue Bayou layered with White Cardstock then Watermelon Ice patterned paper. The strip is Ice Cream Parlor patterned paper layered on White Cardstock finished on one side using the Arch Lattice Edge Punch. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. The sky was created by sponging Blue Bayou ink. I rounded a couple corners and layered the image on Blue Bayou. To embellish the card I added Double Stitched Blue Bayou Ribbon and some small gold brads in each corner.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

I love this card - your layout, colors, cute image and awesome coloring. The DPs are so pretty! And, I love this card because it made me smile thinking that one of my sweet kitties would be jumping up - not for the bird, but for the cupcake!!
