I made a simple stepper card featuring Birthday Cake and 2 of the little monsters from the Mini Set , Monster Blocks - after all you can't have a monster party without cake!

Crafty Catz Challenge #444


Good morning, where did this last week go...it's Friday again! That means it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz, this week it's my turn to host so I get to choose the optional theme...it's nice and simple...Birthdays! 


Our lovely sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Studios , who provided the DT with some sweet images to play with.
To make my card featuring the cute Heather digital stamp, available HERE, I coloured the image using my Copics, and fussy cut. I cut a strip from the righthand side of the front of my card base and covered the rest of the front with embossed white cardstock matted onto green dotted DP. I used the cut off strip to make the horizontal banner she's standing on. The sentiment is stamped with versamark ink and embossed with white EP.
As always there's loads of beautiful cards created by my lovely teamies to be enjoyed at Crafty Catz Challenge Blog. I hope you choose to play along this week...anything goes, the birthdays theme is optional.
Thanks for visiting
Hope you have a great weekend.
