JAI #371 Just Choose Two

Hello there,
I felt the need to create something pink and sparkly this week. The depths of winter was part of the reason but it was also because I needed to make a birthday card for my soon to be seven year old niece. The new challenge at Just Add Ink this week was just perfectly suited as this week Di has asked us to Just Choose Two and the choices...

See what I mean! Perfect. Here's the pink and sparkly creation. The cat is my 'pet' element and as you'll see, rather usually for me, I used 'patterned paper' for my background.

The kitties head wobbles! 

The inside.

Big kids and little kids all like an interactive element so as soon as I decided to use the cat for my nieces card I knew I had to add something that would capture her attention and what could be better than a wobble head! It was super easy to put together having little double sided tape attachments for the base and top. Aside from pink, sparkle is right up there as an essential ingredient for seven year old, so I die cut some glimmer foliage to frame the cat and then finished the card off with a fun birthday sentiment.
