Here's my inspiration!

Happy purr-day by Debbie features Newton's Birthday Balloons by Newton's Nook Designs; #newtonsnook
For my card, I tried my hand at creating backgrounds using acrylic paints. This was inspired by watching a Jennifer McGuire video.  I had a great time experimenting with various colors though I still need more practice.  (Jennifer always makes techniques look so easy and her samples are always amazing!  LOL). I then heat embossed the kitty from the  Newton's Birthday Balloons in white and tried my hand at water coloring. (I know acrylic and water color paints all in one card!)  I have to point out that the pink and dark gray mismatched paws are in honor of my own not-so little Velcro's paws.  Seriously, none of his feet match!  I added some Glossy Accents to the kitty balloon to set it apart and added glittery gel pen to the present. To finish everything off, I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum, chose the yellow and white striped paper, and splattered some pink gems as the final touches. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you will join us at Inky Paws Challenge!
