Happy Anniversary Kitties

Hello, everyone.  A special hello to all my new followers - thank you for following me!  Today I have made an anniversary card for my older brother and his wife.  I'm sure they expect a kitty card from me - well, pretty much everyone I know does!  They have two kitties themselves so I know they'll like this card.

This sweet image is called "Kitty Love" and I won it in a challenge last week that was sponsored by Meljen's Designs.  I thought it would be purr-fect for an anniversary card.  I coloured the kitties with pencils and mounted on black cardstock.  For the base of the card, I covered a white card with textured grey cardstock, onto which I mounted the image and added two pieces of heart-themed washi tape.  I stamped the sentiment in black and added three heart-shaped buttons tied with twine.  Lastly I embellished the image with three black gems.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stampMeljen's Designs Kitty Love
  • Stamp:  Hero Arts Everyday Sayings CL-342 - see -------->
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Bazzill
  • Washi tape:  Loblaws
  • Buttons:  Thrift store
  • Twine, gems:  Dollar store
