Cool Cat Birthday Card

Guess what I got in the mail today...?!  My (somewhat) free cartridge from the Michaels / Provocraft rebate!  And I got Nifty Fifties -- my first choice!  I seriously did a happy dance when I opened the envelope.

I wanted this cartridge for two specific cuts -- the cat and the glasses.  So I couldn't resist cranking out a simple birthday card with the cat tonight:

Card Details:
  • Card Base - Studio G (5x5")
  • Papers - patterned paper from American Crafts - Play; all other cardstock from scraps
  • Cricut Cuts - cat from Nifty Fifties, page 23; tag is <cute_s> and its coordinating layer from Playtime
  • Cuttlebug Embossing - Dots & Spots on yellow shape behind cat
  • Other - sentiment stamp by Hampton Ink

I love this retro look!  I also seem to be using a lot of orange lately, huh?

The Pink Stamper is having a birthday challenge today, so I'm submitting this card to her contest.  Check out her Birthday Crazy Card Challenge and play along!
