Warm and Fuzzy Hello

Hello, everyone - and welcome to my newest followers - so happy to have you.  Today I am sharing another kitty card I made.  This one features an image from A Day for Daisies called Cozy Cat.  I really wanted to play along in their Pink Polka-Dots challenge because I really want to win some of their new kitty images - they are so adorable!  Wish me luck! 

I coloured the sleeping child and kitty with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut and lifted them up with pop-dots.  I paper-pieced the bed with pink polka-dot paper from MME - actually all the dp is from MME.  The sentiment is from Doodle Pantry and I oval-cut it with my Nellie's Multiframe Ovals and added a tiny metal heart charm that says "Made with Love" and tied it with some black fiber.  I added a die-cut kitty and butterfly and a number of black gems.  The silver-trimmed lace is from my stash, as is the doily.  I used my Spellbinders Lacy Circle to cut the polka-dot paper that is layered onto the doily.  I followed this sketch from Papertake Weekly:

  9. Oh Kitty, what a very big smile I'm having as I enjoy this gorgeous card ....out cats certainly do know how to keep themselves comfortable. Indeed, I have a photo of my sister, curled up asleep on my sofa and Leo asleep on top of her just as in your image. Ahhh, happy days :-) I love your paper piercing of the cover ....really shows off the folds beautifully. I so enjoy your fairly recent addition of a lovely little die cut cat amongst your embellishments ....actually, I'm seeing it as your own very appropriate and delightful 'trademark'. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
