Fall Kitty Birthday Card

Hello! It is finally starting to feel like fall here in Oklahoma and that makes me very happy. There is still plenty of green in the landscape, but some trees are starting to get their fall color and the grass has stopped growing (that makes the hubby super happy). So, today I felt inspired to make a Fall/Autumn colored card. My cousin has a birthday in a couple of weeks and she loves cats, which gave me a good reason to use a new Newton's Nook stamp set. The stamp set is called Hello Fall and it was an exclusive set to Simon Says Stamp (currently out of stock). The image was stamped with black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. I've kept the layout casual to play along at The Paper Players Clean and Simple Leaves challenge. I used a stitched rectangle die cut by Lil' Inkers along with Scalloped Edge die cut by Avery Elle. The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set by Stampin' Up! and the patterned paper is from the Into The Woods dsp by Stampin' Up! That's pretty much it! This card is also linked to the following challenges: Stamping Sensations (Colours of Autumn) and Crafty Cardmakers (Autumn Colours).

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
