Braided Edge - Happy Purr-Day

Hello, everybody.  On today's card I've tried a new technique:  the braided edge.  I don't think the technique is new, but it's new to me!  I saw it used by one of my DT teammies and I've wanted to try it ever since.  I also tried to keep this card CAS to show off my fancy edge and the sweet kitty image.


I chose an adorable image from Di's Digi Stamps called Daisy Kitten, and I coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils.  The embossing folder is from Couture Creations called Washed Away, which I won in some candy - thank you, Donna!  I used my Elizabeth Craft butterfly die and added a glittery butterfly sticker.  The sentiment is from Penny Black Nine Lives set, and the ribbon is from my stash.
