Cat & Mouse Party

We're having a party with the new "Party Time" release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.

This release is full of cute animals celebrating birthdays and sentiments to match! 

For my post today I get to introduce you to "Cat & Mouse Party". One of my dear friends has a cat named Sunshine who is a light orange and white striped cutie! This stamp reminded me of him! 

I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers then cut it out using a stitched square die.  Stickles in the confetti give my card a little sparkle. 

The new sketch for this month's challenge was the perfect layout. 

Now I know a few of my fellow DT's are going to laugh but I couldn't find a patterned paper in my oh so "small" collection (not) that I wanted to use so I created my own. I cut a piece of white cardstock to size, did some ink blending, spritzed it with water and when it was dry stamped the sentiment repeatedly and voila - patterned paper. 
Some matching paper cut with a fishtail banner, a matching bow and some gumdrops finish off my card
