Glitter n Sparkle DT - Pearls and Lace

Hello, everyone.  Welcome to my newest follower, Georgiana, so lovely to have you! I have a different style to share today.  I was practicing my Shabby Chic style with this card - I don't know if I succeeded or not - I think I may need more practice LOL! This is my DT card for this weeks's challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  We would like to see your Pearls and Lace.   Just look at the cute image I got to play with this week - she's called Kitty's Cat from Digistamps 4 Joy.  How fun!  I coloured her with my Prismacolor pencils and then fussy-cut.  

I used a few other digi images on my card as well.  Kitty and her cat needed a place to sit, so I added the chair from the Doodle Pantry - Shaggy Cat set, which I paper-pieced.  The digi butterfly is from Crafty Secrets - Flower Garden set, and the Purr-ority Post stamp is from Crafty Secrets - Party Cats set, both of which I printed and fussy-cut.  

Here are the other items used:
  • Dies:  Butterfly (Elizabeth Craft), Flowers (Die-namics Sunflower), Kitten die-cut from my friend Marion - thank you!
  • Ribbon/Lace:  Crinkle Ribbon (won this from Little Scrap Pieces and also the white flower - thank you, Karen!), lace (thrift store/flea market)
  • Patterned paper:  MME
  • Sentiment tag:  Recycled from tea bag
  • Accents:  Pearls, red flower (dollar store), charm (stash)

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Pearls and Lace challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Bugaboo Digistamps - 7 images  
Digistamps 4 Joy - 5 images
