Mailbox Kitties (ITDK image)

Hi, everyone! Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my lovely new follower - Princess Judy - so happy to have you here!

Today I'm joining the progressive challenge over at Imagine That...digis by Kris. I received this month's digi set for free because I played along last month.  So glad I did because the February image is the adorable Mailbox Kitties - and you all know how I love kitties!  These sweet kitties have found a love letter/Valentine in their mailbox!

I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils, inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, and mounted on brown cardstock.  I really had fun making this card!  I added a gazillion die cuts, mostly Cheery Lynn Designs!  They are having an Add a Flourish challenge over at Cheery Lynn this week and I wanted to play along!  Here's a list of die cuts used; I didn't have any Cheery Lynn flourishes so I used the other brands shown below:

Cheery Lynn Dancing Doily Lace Border - DL134
Cheery Lynn Build a Flower 1 - B181
Cheery Lynn Siena Double Edge Border - B373
Cheery Lynn Mini Butterflies with Angel Wings - D138
Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco B - B162
Cheery Lynn Dragonfly Small with Angel Wings - DL152
Cheery Lynn Ivy Strip - B304
Memory Box Quinn Flourish
MFT Die-Namics Medium Fancy Flourish

The patterned paper is from MME Love Me 6x6 pad and I inked around the edges with Distress Ink and mounted on brown cardstock. I inked the petals of the large flower with Barn Door Distress Ink. The centres of the flowers are red brads.  The ticket sentiment is from Digital Delights.  I added a few other embellishments: three large heart-shaped gems; turquoise gems on the dragonfly; and a heart-shaped charm that says "made with love," tied with twine.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Whoo! All those colors and patterns and embellishments! What a fun card this is. I like kitties too but I don't think I want them in my mailbox.... their food gets delivered (because I am that lazy) and I suspect they'd eat it all before I got home from work.

Mrs A. said...

Another fun card with so much to look at. You need to come back a couple of times to appreciate fully as you miss things the first time round. Such gorgeous colours and all those lovely die cuts. Thankyou for fluttering by again for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

This is so gorgeous Kitty. Such a cute image and awesome colouring and layout.
Sadly we have had bad news this morning from my step-daughter who lives in France. She has five cats and two dogs and had to have one of the cats put to sleep yesterday. She emailed us to say she couldn't speak to us today on our usual Saturday chat as she is understandably tearful and she is going to bury him today in the garden.

Donna said...

I've missed several fabulous posts. This card is stunning Kitty!
