Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Show Us Some Blue

Hello, everybody.  It's Sunday, and that means there's a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is Show Us Some Blue.  I lucked out again with my DT image because I got to work with a kitty - you all know how much I love kitties LOL.  This digi is called Laundry Lass and it's from Digistamps 4 Joy, one of our generous sponsors.

I had a lot of fun colouring this digi with my Prismacolor pencils.  Then I fussy-cut just the kitty so I could 3-D him on the basket.  Here's a list of all the supplies used for my card:
  • Digi stampLaundry Lass from Digistamps 4 Joy
  • Clear stamp:  Cleary Besotted Leafy Accents
  • Sentiment stamp:  Art Gone Wild
  • Ink:  Stampin' Up Green Galore
  • Dies:  Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents, Spellbinders Labels Sixteen, Die-namics Medium Fancy Flourish, Poppy Stamps Curious Cat, Nellie's Multiframe Circles
  • Punch:  Creative Memories Corner Rounder
  • Colouring medium:  Prismacolor Pencils 
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Musical Flouish
  • Designer paper:  Papermania Vintage Notes
  • Lacy ribbon:  May Arts
  • Accents:  Flowers, brads (Dollarama and thrift store)
I followed this sketch from Sketch N Stash:

Love the pics of your loved ones, my cats are not so fond of baskets, one definately prefers my side of the bed and the other one loves to lay near to the window. Love the card, the cute image and the cute little cat you added, such a delish addition, hugs, Marion
