I always need Birthday cards and my Daughter-in-Law has a birthday coming up and she loves cats, so I had to put one on her card.  I borrowed the window idea from Crafting With Katie at http://www.craftingwithkatie.com/2015/01/mct-inspiration-wednesday.html  I thought it would look cute on my card.  I cut the window using Square Stitched Goody Dies and stamped the sentiment through the window using one of my favorites, It's All About You stamp set.  I then stamped a pale yellow background using Peachy Keen Stamps Cat Background.  I stamped, chalked and fussy cut the cat with a Peachy Keen Stamp Cool Cats set.  I cut some balloons from Best Bots Forever and Stitched Party Dies, and stamped some using Watermark Resist ink and one in yellow.

Oh My!  The chalking glows in the picture but looks much softer in real life.  The Purr-fect sentiment is from Peachy Keen Cool Cats.  I chalked some brown around the cat to ground her some.  I added gold thread to the balloons and tied it to the tail.  I then added some clear sequins for a little bling.  I was going for the colors in the photo and sketch...the blue balloon does match, but looks green in my photo.  I had fun making my card.  Here is a list of products used.

MCT Designer Challenge

My Creative Time has such fun challenges!  Here are the inspiration picture and sketch.

Here is my take on the challenge using the sketch, colors and heart love.

I cut out two hearts from the Heart 2 Heart Love Frame Dies.  It looks grey in the photo but the heart background is a tan with white hearts that was printed on my printer.  The card base is Chocolate PTI paper.  I cut the arrow from scraps of kraft and a pink stripe strip, from the 4X4 Journal Die + More die set.  I cut the white frame using dies from Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More set.  I like how the card turned out but still think it needs something more.  I had fun trying to come up with something a little different.  Below is a list of products used.

MCT Products Used:

4x4 Journal Die + More - the arrow
Heart 2 Heart Love Frame Dies - the hearts
Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More - the white frame

I hope you liked my take on this fun challenge.  Thank you for dropping by!
