Xmas Lights Kitty

I'm still making Christmas cards!  The week-long Christmas in July event at Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge Blog really has me creating up a storm!   I wish I had some Bugaboo Christmas images, but unfortunately I don't, so I'm using what I have.  I coloured the digi image with coloured pencils, and I stamped my own snowflake background for the top panel.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Sketch:  Stella Says Sketch #139 (see below)
  • Digi Image:  QKR Stampede
  • Stamps:  Large snowflake (Inkadinkado), small snowflake (The Old Island Stamp Company), sentiment (part of a Stampendous Fluffles stamp)
  • Ink:  Clearsnap Ancient Page - Chocolate
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Paper:  Recollections
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two
  • Punch:  Marvy Uchida Circle
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Accents:  Felt snowflake and gem (Dollarama)
