King of the Castle Kitty

Hello, everyone.  I'm back again today with a birthday card.  Just look at this adorable image I used - it's called King of the Castle from Di's Digi Stamps, and I coloured it with my Prismacolors.  I love, love, love Di's Digi Stamps images.  I would really love to have some more of them LOL.

Now you'll remember I received two bow makers for Christmas.  Check out the teeny-tiny bow I made with my Craft-Dee BowZ - I could not have made a bow that small without a bow maker.

I followed this sketch over at Mojo Monday:

Here's a list of the other supplies I used:

  • Stamps:  Sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company), Leaf (Cearly Besotted Leafy Accents)
  • Dies:  Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents, Spellbinders Labels 5
  • Ribbon:  May Arts, Offray
  • Patterned paper:   Forever in Time
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up, Recollections
  • Flowers:  Thrift store
  • Accents:  Charm (my stash), gems (Dollarama)
