Nicecrane GDT - Musical Cat

Hi, everybody!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Stamping with Bibliana -  thank you for joining me! 

This month I am a guest designer for Nicecrane Designs! I adore Ignacio's wonderful images and digis, so I am really enjoying myself!  My card features a musical kitty from the Vintage Funny Kittens set.  I sponged around the edges with distress ink to give it a vintage look.

I did some stamping here as well.  On the lightest sheet of dp, I stamped several bird images, one of which I fussy-cut and affixed with foam tape at the top right.  Then I added lots of flowers and fun items from my stash to make it interesting.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Clear Stamps:  Crafty Secrets Bird Notes
  • Ink:  Versafine Vintage Sepia, Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy
  • Die:  Impression Obsession Cat Set
  • Designer paper:  MME Reunion
  • Digital elements:  Scrabble tiles (The Computer Scrapbook freebie - thank you!), sentiment ticket (Scrap-a-licious freebie - thank you)
  • Accents:  Flowers (I am Roses, Marcella by K, and my stash), Dymo Label Maker, brads, buttons, ribbon, wooden butterfly, gem, and charm - all from my stash
  • Sketch:  Mojo Monday (see below)

I would like to support the following challenges:
