Paper Smooches Cool Shades Challenge

I'm here with a quick post for a fun little card I recently made. I had fun experimenting with different elements and layering papers, which I don't usually do.

Here is the color story for this week's challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge:

These colors were way happy and bright and made me think birthday!

Here is my card using the Party Posse stamp set. SO adorable. And, I'm a sucker for cats, soooo......

I tinkered with a couple of different paper pads. Don't be too impressed -- it's, literally, what was out on my desk! I layered it and monkeyed around until I liked how it looked. My favorite part is the sweet little kitty (did I mention I'm a cat person?) stamped on a scrap of denim! And, yes, I have a cut up pair of old blue jeans in my room. They were in such a sad state that I decided they were worth more to me cut up, than they were to anyone else whole.
 I stamped Miss Kitty in Black StazOn ink and embellished her little necklace and nose with teeny, tiny adhesive rhinestones. I stamped the birthday hat with more patterned paper, trimmed it and glued it over the denim. I used the aqua colored dots to anchor my sentiment banners and then, of course, I needed a few more to tie it all together.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
