Card 1 - Slimline Pawty Trio Card

I can't get enough of slimline cards lately so I was determined to make one for my trio of felines!

Key Supplies:

Birthday Kitties Matching Die

Birthday Kitties Stamp Set

Birthday Kitties Stencil

Confetti Stencil Duo

Slimline Window Trio Die

Clean and Clear Enamel Dots

Distress Ink Pads: Spun Sugar; Picked Raspberry, Pumice Stone, Antique Linen, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Black Soot

I was super happy to find a stencil in my bundle that allowed me to color in these cool cats by ink-blending instead of me needing to pull out my markers. I can be very lazy sometimes with markers, but I am never too tired for ink-blending! LOL
