Glitter n Sparkle DT - Stitching (Real or Faux)

Hello, 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 Stitching - Real or Faux.  Come on over and join us!  Just look at the cute kitty image I got to play with this week - it's called Celebrating Kitty from Eureka Stamps.  I had a good look around over at Eureka Stamps and I was so impressed - they have lots of kitty images - I'll definitely be going back.  I coloured this cute kitty with my Prismacolor pencils - I think he looks like one of my boys LOL. 

I also have the perfect (or should I say purr-fect) sentiment; take a look at the inside of my card:

This sentiment is also from Eureka Stamps and it's called Purrfect Birthday.  I told you they have some great cat stamps - and cat sentiments too.  So on the front of the card, I fussy-cut the kitty and affixed with pop dots. I doodled faux stitching all around the glittery patterned paper and added ribbon and a triple-looped bow. Have I said it enough times that I love my new bow makers?  Lastly I added a little present charm.  On the inside of the card I added a panel of the glittery patterned paper and mounted the sentiment on purple cardstock to match the ribbon on the front.  And I added a kitty die-cut to keep the cat theme going LOL.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Patterned paper:  Dollarama (I got some great new glittery paper there)
  • Die:  Poppy Stamps Curious Cat
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Bow maker:  Craft-Dee BowZ
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for faux stitching)
  • Sketch:  MFP Speedy TV Sketch with a Twist (see below)
