Happy Little Stampers ~ October Birthday Challenge

I'm happy to share a card today that I sent to my sister for her birthday. She has received it, so I can now share it and not spoil the surprise. 

lt's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Birthday Challenge

Here's my card

A little back-story - my sister adopted a cat near the beginning of COVID, Buttercup, more commonly known as Princess Buttercup because she is, well a cat! LOL! I saw this stamp set by CTMH, called Cattitude and thought it would be perfect for my sister. Well, I put the stamp set in a "safe" place and couldn't find it, until this Spring (woohoo). I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a white A2 card panel. There was no way that I was coloring all the cats (not even for my sister) but I thought that I would add color to some random cats. I used Copic markers C2, C3, C5, C7, E33, E47, E50, E71, R29, YG91. For the sentiment, I used Unity Stamps' Say It Big dies, which are word dies and shadow dies. For the word, I used gold shimmer cardstock and for the shadow, I used vellum, so as not to cover too many kitties. For the word wishes, I heat embossed with silver embossing powder on vellum, using Clearly Besotted's A Little Sentimental stamp set. I trimmed the vellum down and adhered it to the card. I adhered the panel to a white card base and sent it to my sister.

We'd love to see your birthday card creations in our gallery this month.
