Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Use Your Favourite Digi

Hello, my friends.  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 Use Your Favourite Digi. Isn't this a fun theme - please come play along with us - we always have great prizes to be awarded, and this week is no exception - see prizes listed below.

I actually did use my favourite digi for this card.  I chose one of my own images from Di's Digistamps - I have two favourite digi designers, and Diane Carubia is one of them.  I just discovered Di's Digistamps a few weeks ago and now I'm hooked.  This cute image is called Kitty Kiss and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I used Diamond Stickles on kitty's hat and along the snow and rounded the corners to give it a softer look.  I added three tiny pearls on the mistletoe.  

The image was mounted on some sparkly silver foam (Dollarama) and I embellished with a candy-cane charm from my stash.  I added red stripes to the candy cane with a red Promarker.  The ribbon is from Offray, and the red glittery fish-tail strip is actually ribbon that I bought at Dollarama.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from Penny Black. I embossed the white cardstock panel with Couture Creations Sugarplum Ball.  The sketch I followed is from MFP Speedy TV:

Well dear friend, you've done it again ......another simply gorgeous Christmas card with a most adorable cat image. With your attention to every last detail this card is so elegant and a real joy to see. Your candy cane is so effective with its fine red stripes ( very tasty )and the mistletoe, with its pearl berries .....well no wonder the kitty is looking so lovingly at the little mouse who's brought it along. Oh, I do love this card,. Good luck in our extended challenge. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
