Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Buttons

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 Use Some Buttons. Come on over and join us!  Just look at the cute kitty image I got to play with this week - it's called Naughty Kitty Fish Bowl from DigiDarla Designs. I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and doodled faux stitching around the image.

I followed Sketch #86 at Papertake Weekly:

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Patterned paper:  Walmart
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Art Gone Wild)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Buttons:  Michaels and Dollarama
  • Ribbon:  Offray and dollar store
  • Twine:  American Crafts
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for doodled stitching)
  • Accent:  Bling pawprint (dollar store)

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Buttons challenge - as usual, we have some great prizes up for grabs, thanks to our generous sponsors:

  13. Gorgeous card Kitty, love that paw embellie and such a sweet image, XOX Lucy

  14. Your sentiment stamp is purr-fect! I really love the colors you used together. Very pretty card!

  15. Naughty puss! That smile is so not nice considering what he is doing! Love all your embellishments and the sentiment too. Thanks for entering at the Squirrel and the Fox for our current challenge.

  16. That image is just too too cute!! I really like the color combo you selected and your fringe ribbon! Wonderful!

  17. Oh, what a naughty kitty but who could be upset at the endearing expression on Kitty's face as he does what comes naturally a cat.

    Kitty, apart from the lovely smile this card has given me through your delightful image I love your colour choice and very much your choice of embellishments. Stitching,, , real or faux is a quiet finishing touch to many cards (to my mind) but in this card you have made it shout by your choice of buttons and two different braids. What a wonderful way to show each element working to enhance the next. Very creative and very beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
