Dress-up Kitty - Just for You

Hello, everyone.  Today I made a kitty card.  I do make a lot of kitty cards LOL. 

I started by covering a white card base with two embossed panels of green cardstock.  I coloured the sweet digi image with pencils, rounded the corners, mounted on green cardstock and then pink patterned paper, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a pink punched circle, added a handmade green bow, and affixed to the card with foam tape, behind which I added some pink flowers with pearls.  Lastly I embellished with a hat and a key charm tied with twine.  The cute hat embellishment was part of some candy I won from Avril at Crafting in the Bedroom - thank you again, Avril.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi imageSylvia Zet - Little Kitty Lady (this was a freebie - thank you, Sylvia)
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (from Crafter's Companion U.K. - Tale of Peter Rabbit set) ---->
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Patterned paper:  Marcella by K 
  • Embossing folders:  Cuttlebug Baby's Breath and Musical Flourish
  • Punches:  Circle (Marvy Uchida), corner rounder (Creative Memories)
  • Flowers/pearls:  Craft Canada
  • Ribbon:  Offray, Multicraft
  • Twine:  American Craft
  • Accents:  Key charm (Dollarama), hat (Hobby and Crafting Fun)
