Summer Relaxin' Kitty

I posted earlier about the cards I made for my 12-year-old niece.  She has been in the hospital, and we're still not sure when she's coming home.  This card, however, is for her sister, who's 10, just in case she's been feeling left out.  I chose this sweet pre-coloured freebie digi from Free Dearie Doll Digi Stamps and I mounted it to look like a Polaroid picture.  The sentiment is a freebie from StampArt Design by Kathryne.  Other supplies used were:  cardstock (Recollections), decorative tape (Loblaws), butterfly punch (EK Success), embossing folder (Cuttlebug - Divine Swirl), and gems (Dollarama).

This is SO cute! I want to be that kitty relaxing on the tube in the water and chilling out. I LOVE the little bits of washi tape you've used and how it all came together - SO CUTE!
