Kitty Birthday

Hello everyone! Today's card is a super cute card I made for my niece's 2nd birthday. My niece shares a birthday with me :) and is about 12 days younger than my daughter. It is so much fun to see them grow up together.

Here is a photo of the 3 of us.
(My daughter is in the middle).

Of course it's impossible to get them both to smile and stand still at the same time. And if I want any pictures of my daughter lately, I have to do them in selfie mode because she wants to see herself in the pictures all of the time, haha!!

So for the card, I wanted to use the Foxy Friends set to make a kitty card. My niece has a cat and we have cats so I've become a little cat obsessed lately. (Like I want all of the cat/kitten clothes for my daughter, haha!). And I wanted something cute and fun that she would like and I think I succeed. I think my favorite part is the pom pom trim around the oval or maybe all of the kitty faces in the background. The sequins on the card are from the new Holiday Catalog. Aren't they so pretty!

I hope you like today's card and if you have any questions on how I made it, please feel free to contact me.

Have a great day!
