Cupcake Inspirations 396 - CAT Themed Challenge!

Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? For each challenge they post a YUMMY cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

The current challenge going up today features CAT cupcakes and the theme is to use a cat in your project!


We're sponsoring this challenge so If you head over to their blog and play along you have a chance to win a $25 store credit to our store at newtonsnookdesigns.com! How awesome is that?

Of course I had to play along -- here's the card I created. Although the challenge didn't specifiy that you needed to use cupcakes I couldn't resist using an image from our newest cat themed set,  Newton Loves Cake since it features BOTH a cat and a cupcake! How perfect is that?! I colored the kitty with copic markers and trimmed out the image using the coordinating Newton Loves Cake Die Set. To create the card,  I cut out a couple of curvy hills using patterned paper and our Land Borders Die Set and added them to a white background. I then stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment, also from the Newton Loves Cake stamp set above the hills.

I decided I wanted to add in the "to my favorite cat lady" sentiment too so I cut a little banner out of yellow cardstock to add it to the card.  Then I finished it off with some colored sequins!
