Cat's Meow

I've just returned from a 4 day stamping retreat with the girls from the Stamp Shack.  It's an event we do every year and it was wonderful!  However, it seems every year the time goes by faster and faster. (They do say "Time flies when you're having fun!") Over the course of the weekend I made about 22 cards!! Below is one of them.

One of the girls there was making "Happy Birthday, you old bag!" cards by actually stamping on a brown paper lunch bag. I thought that was a clever idea and did the same for this card.

To start, I stamped Vicki's Versatile Background (369H) on white and kraft cardstock.  I adhered the 2 layers together and covered the seam with some yummy brown ribbon. Next, I stamped the Cat In The Bag (118H) image twice, once on a brown paper lunch bag and then again on white cardstock.  The cat was colored with Copic Markers and then the bag in the image was paper pieced with the image that was stamped on the brown bag.  I split up the Cat's Meow Birthday Greeting (1125G) and added the "Happy Birthday" portion on a popped up sentiment banner.

Great idea for a great card, don't you think?
Thanks, Angie!
