SUO145 - Eat Cake!

The SUO Challenge this week is all about cute critters.  Well, I can get onboard with that.  I love critters---especially the cute ones.

This gave me a chance to use some of my more neglected stamp sets as well as a couple which are retired but still close to my heart.  Which ones are those?  Well, I used the current Giggle Greetings set for my kitty and that cheesy cake.  My adorable little mouse came from the retired Life in the Forest set and the much yummier cake, the birthday hat and the greeting all came from the retired Sketched Birthdays set.  Together, they combine to make a very cute card, don't they?

I used the colours from the background Cherry On Top Designer stack paper when I coloured the images except for the Smoky Slate in my mouse and the combination Pumpkin Pie/Crumb Cake in my kitty.  So the inks I used are Watermelon Wonder, Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  My base cardstock is Smoky Slate followed by a layer of Basic Black.  I think the colours really pop and make this a "happy" card.


I hope you'll check out the other SUO Challenge cards and add your own critter as well.

I've also added this card to the Retro Rubber Challenge 35 "Anything Goes".
