I was looking around blogland and spied a couple of challenges that inspired me. With my mojo still missing, I decided to go with it anyway!
My inspiration came from the sketch at Jo's Scrap Shack, the colours at Cupcake Inspirations, and the pop song at Scrap it with a Song (I was inspired by the love theme of Adele's "Love Song"):
I cut navy and white cardstock on the diagonal and pieced them together, embossed with Cuttlebug Cross My Heart, and added a strip of gold glitter paper and gold-trimmed ribbon along the diagonal. The cats are from Marianne Design - A Pair of French Cats, which I die-cut from left-over navy cardstock that has been in my stash for about 10 years! I affixed them to a circle of gold specialty paper, die-cut with Nellie's Multiframes, and used a white Signo Uniball pen and a navy Staedtler Lumocolor marker to draw dots around the circle and along the diagonal edges. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, and I added two glittery punched hearts.
