Glitter n Sparkle DT - Anything Goes

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a warm welcome to two lovely new followers - Melissa Beattie and Taunya Butler - so happy you joined me!

It's Sunday, so that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog! This week our theme is everyone's favourite: Anything Goes! I chose an adorable kitty from one of our generous sponsors, Pattie's Creations, called Allie Sleeping in Pawprint Bed. I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.

I needed a sympathy card for a friend who lost her kitty. I think the sleeping kitty looks so peaceful here and I hope the card brings some comfort. The sentiment is a clear stamp from Technique Tuesday.  I used a strip of black patterned washi tape along the left edge and added thin strips of black and pink cardstock from my scraps pile.  Lastly I added three sequins and rounded the bottom right corner.

Inside the card I stamped a pet sympathy sentiment from DRS Designs.

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Anything Goes challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week!
