Merry Kitty Ornament - TMS 532

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome two new followers - Donna Rinckel and Sally Bownes - thank you for joining me!

If you're looking for a fun sketch, we have one for you at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  I think it's perfect for a holiday card, but it would work for any occasion.  We have an awesome prize up for grabs too!  Head over and check out the beautiful inspiration by my team mates!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the kitty from Your Next Stamp Hello Winter (this kitty has a tiny snowflake on his tongue, so cute!).  I adhered him with foam tape inside the sparkly ornament and added a red bow (Poppystamps Prim and Proper Bow; circle dies from Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles and My Creative Time Bunch of Fun Circles; red and green glitter cardstock from Dollarama).  I went with mitten-patterned paper for the background (Lawn Fawn Snow Day) and added a die-cut sentiment (Poppystamps Merry Ornament).  I finished off the card with three green snowflake sequins and added red gems on the bow and the ornament.

Here's this week's sketch, designed by Melissa - Sketch #532.  I hope you'll be inspired and join our challenge!

I finished the inside of the card with a sentiment from Your Next Stamp Hello Winter and some scraps of the patterned paper and red glitter cardstock.  I used my Tim Holtz Bow Punch and red sequin as well.
