happy birthday to you...

Hello friends!!  Hope you weekend is going well.  Here with a card that I made for this week's LIM challenge.  It is Jen's birthday and so we have been tasked with the challenge of making a birthday card for Jen.   She noted on the LIM blog that if she were to make a birthday card for herself she would use either cats, fish or butterflies... so I decided to make a card using a cat.   I


I pulled out my Penny Black clear set "hello, friend" and used the image of the chubby little cat holding tight to a balloon bouquet.  I stamped him using VersaMark watermark ink, applied black embossing powder and heat set.  The balloon portion of the image was stamped on three different patterned paper from the Penny Black Madison paper pad and then paper pieced on to the main image.  I pulled out some VersaMagic inks and my Tsukineko brush sticks and added a bit of color to the little guy.  Finished off the card with one of the first Penny Black stamps I ever bought... a wood mounted birthday sentiment.  Hope Jen likes this!

Now I have some fun news to share regarding the Penny Black blog.  All next week brand new Penny Black products that are just to "die" for {wink} will be featured!  If you are on Facebook or get the Penny Black newsletter then you know what I'm talking about!  Signing up for the PB newsletter is as easy as pie and gives you lots of benefits.  There is also a sneak peak posted right now on the blog... so make sure you check out the PB blog today and on Monday, June 24th.  You won't be disappointed!!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  VersaMark watermark; VersaMagic Gingerbread & Jumbo Java; PP:  Penny Black Madison pad; Embossing powder:  Filigree black
