Be the Birthday

Hello everyone!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards and for my project today I used the adorable Yoga Cats Brads, part of the Spring release.

I couldn't wait to work with them on a card.  And here it is:

I wanted to use several brads, so I thought this Three Circle Flip Card from the Silhouette store would be perfect.   Those circles are just the right size for the cats!

Not being a yoga enthusiast myself, I wasn't sure how these yoga poses should be situated, so I did some research and discovered the first pose is the Balancing Stick, the second is the Lotus and the third is the Half Moon.  Here's a closer look:

I wanted to find some Asian themed digital paper, and I opted for this pattern from Panda Zen by Lliella Designs and had a perfectly matched card stock.  Just like it was meant to be!

When I finished with the card front, I felt the colors were a bit too cool for the little lotus cat, so I took my Gold Wink of Stella and dotted the centers of the leaves.  Once I did that, all was harmonious. ;-)

For the inside flap, I wanted the sentiment relating to yoga, so this is what I finally decided upon.  I think it might even hold up to someone who knows a thing or two about yoga.

I printed it on Smokey Slate card stock in dark gray using the Ancient Script font.

I guess that wraps it up except to say, "namaste"!

Who provided the inspiration for these cards?  Katy did!
