Purrfect Cat with Butterflies

Hello, everyone.  I made another kitty card LOL.

I started by stamping French script in grey and the word "Purrfect" in black on a cream card base.  I stamped the cat in black on a white scrap and mounted on black and then a torn burgundy scrap, onto which I stamped butterflies repeatedly in gold and "Double Blessings" sentiment in black.  I affixed the torn panel to the card and attached two black eyelets, which I tied with gold twine.  Lastly I embellished with two butterfly stickers.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Cat (Magenta Cat of the Month - August 2009 - Lili), French script (Stampin' Up!), "Purrfect" (Technique Tuesday - Cats we Love), butterfly, "Double Blessings" (unknown, unmarked)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Stampin' Up! Going Grey, Brilliance Galaxy Gold
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!, Walmart
  • Accents:  Eyelets, gold twine, stickers (dollar store)

  7. Do Kiwi and honeydew watch the butterflies serrupticiously Kitty? My boys do but fortunately they don't try to pounce - they just seem to be mesmerised by butterflies fluttering around my plants. Once again, you've given me a lovely big smile. I love the colouring you have used - it gives your card such a gentle, elegant feel - and I'm feeling lovely and calm just looking at it. (bit like my boys in the garden). Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
