Kitten in a Mitten

Hi, everybody.  Welcome to my newest followers - so happy to have you.  Today I made a Christmas card - I am definitely getting a head start this year.  I used an adorable kitty image called Kitten in a Mitten that I won in a blog hop a few weeks ago over at Fresh Brewed Designs - I just love this sweet kitten - he looks so warm and cozy in the mitten.  I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and added white glitter to his little hat and the cuff of the mitten - it's sort of hard to see all the glitter in this photo.

I followed this sketch over at Fresh Brewed Designs:

Here are the other supplies used for my card:
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Plaid)
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Snowflakes
  • Die:  Memory Box Precious Stars (used bow only)
  • Accents:  Snowflakes, glittery ribbon, doily, gems (Dollarama)
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
