I started by white heat-embossing a number of stars (Newton's Nook) all over the sky. Then I masked the entire image so I could create an ink-blended sky with Chipped Sapphire, Evergreen Bough, and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. To add texture, I splashed some water droplets onto the sky. I love how it turned out!
Next I peeled off the masking fluid and coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils. I fussy-cut the two kitties so I could pop them up with foam tape. You will notice the image contains just a partial brick wall so I drew the rest of the wall by hand. I die-cut the coloured image with a Nellie's Multiframe Circle and mounted it on a die-cut stitched circle from My Creative Time.

My colour combo was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, where the theme is G for Grape and/ or G for Glitter - I went with both! I added two sparkly butterflies! The patterned paper is from Forever in Time and I added a number of flowers from my stash (the beautiful bling flower came from Flourish with a Bling - thank you, Lucy!). The die-cut leaves are Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip. The sentiment is an older wood-mounted stamp from A Muse Artstamps and I heat-embossed it in white and hand-cut into a banner shape. To finish off the card, I added two buttons and a "Made with Love" heart charm.
