# birthday card # Penny Black

Penny Black : For You, Happy Day, Happy Birthday

Hello...Good Morning. A little long post today ^_^ please bear with me ^_^.

Today is Monday and i am kicking in with a new theme. If you read my blog post on saturday, you would know this week theme already. Just a brief introduction for those who does not know what i was talking about. Every week i would set a target to myself to create bunch of cards with fixed theme, it could be colors, stamp brand, type of image, or many more. This to helps me to make use of the old and neglected stamps. So for this week theme, i will presents cards with cats or dogs on it. I also try on my style of clean and simple card on few cards.

So that is all about the weekly theme, i do hope you join me ^_^. I will be online on Instagram most of the time. So if you have instagram and would like to pay me a visit, do add my ig : yennipaperlove and tag me when you make a card with similar theme for this week. I would love to see because each card will give me inspirations ^_^.

For today's card, i am doing collaboration with my sweet friend that i met in Instagram. Her name is ren and her blog is Ink a paper. Her style is very opposite of mine but it does not stop me to get inspired by her creations. She has a free spirit when coloring and stamping. She likes to try new things and love to play with ink pads. Her blog post always fun to read and always has instructions on how to make the cards which is awesome! ^_^  so do pay her a visit ya! ^_^.

So why collaboration for today's card only ? that because when i did finish coloring the front image and post it on Instagram, she wrote she has the same image. So my brain pop and said why not you two make a card with the same image. It will be an awesome thing to see same image but different style ^_^. So i drop her a question and she said okay. yay! so that was how the collaboration born ^_^.

And here is the card that i made with this cutie stamps. 
I wanted to make a clean and simple cards (totally simple), but i have the urgent  to inject my original style. So in this card, i added lace,twine and absolutely sequins is a must have. In fact sequins was added last because i feel something missing, something shiny when i took a picture of my early card that completely no sequins.  Hand itchy, i am actually want to add only surround the cat but end up added on the diagonal line too ^_^. 
I am using penny black stamp Furry Love (3102J) and colored it with zig markers. Fuzzy cut it and add 3M foam tape to raise the image. The sentiment "for you" from mama elephant small talk. Absolutely latest favorite stamps set. 

In the beginning, i wanted to keep the tag plain (completely nothing), but i thought that should not be the way. So i decided to pick another stamps set from penny black it's your day 30-046 and colored 2 more cats. one of the cats i stick it inside the card.  Stamped sentiment "happy day" use mama elephant stamps and inks. 

And here is the inside card. Keep it simple but still complement with the front card. Happy Birthday sentiment from Wplus9 stamp set.
