another card for the inky paws challenge!

it's friday! :)
that in itself can make me smile sometimes! but couple that with a new inky paws challenge card i have to share, and it's even better!!

once a month newton's nook designs has a challenge and you can win newton's nook stamps! hello! and today i'm over on the newton's nook blog with this super FUN and happy card i created for the inky paws challenge - which is all about COLOR!! :)

love these colors!!

and my card just makes me smile! :)
for my card i used one of my favorite sets - newton's antics!! i love the images, i love the name and i love that cat! lol!! so funny!

first i found some patterned paper scraps i had in the corresponding colors and cut them all to the same sized strips. then i placed them on a diaganol all lined up, and that's the background! :) the diaganola background is also popped up, and so is newton. LOVE me some dimension! :)
oh, and of course, some white thickers for the 'meow' was a MUST!! lol! :)

then i stamped the sentiment and that cute little paw print image on the bottom! and just to do a little more, i stamped the paw print again on some patterned paper that matched the kitty's 'fur' and fussy cut it out (whew!) and added it to the one by the sentiment! :) 

so that's it! are you inspired?! are you going to play along? i hope so!!! leave me a comment below with your blog link if you do, and i'll check out your card and leave some blog love! :)
