I Love You Kitties

I made another card for my honey!  The card I made yesterday really cheered him up so I thought I'd make another one.  I mentioned yesterday that he's been feeling down lately.  He does love my cards - he's my biggest fan - so I know this one will put a smile on his face when he gets home from work tonight. 

This time I tried a technique called Stained Glass on Vellum that I saw at MFP Speedy TV - I'm not sure if I did it correctly but it's my best shot at it.  I stamped the kitties and heart on vellum, coloured with pencils, and affixed to polka-dot patterned paper that I mounted on black cardstock.  The heart stamps says "I Love" so I wrote "You!" with a fine black marker.  I then affixed that panel to a glittery brown polka-dot patterned paper that I mounted on black cardstock, which covered a white card base.  I embellished with two wooden polka-dot hearts and some heart-themed decorative tape.  Here are the supplies used:

I didn't know you could color on vellum like that. How neat! I have the Love My Cat set, but not the Tom Kitten set.
I bet your honey loved your card! It is so sweet! :)
