Silly Easter Kitty

Hello, everybody.  I am still resting my injured shoulder so I've made another card.  This one was a lot of fun!  I was inspired by Magenta's Easter challenge, and since I don't have any Easter stamps from Magenta, I had to improvise, hehehe.  I hope my card makes you smile!

My silly Easter kitty is Romeo, Magenta's out-of-print Cat of the Month stamp from September 2009.  I stamped him with Versafine Onyx Black on cream cardstock and coloured his eyes and nose with Prismacolor pencils.  Isn't he cute with his little bunny ears?!  He's all ready for Easter! The bunny ears were fussy-cut from Bugaboo's Bunny and Chick Topper and coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  And, of course, I wanted to add a gazillion little accents and die cuts to make it complete. Here are all the supplies I used:
  • Die cuts:  Corner (LaLa Land), Flower (Memory Box), Oval (Nellie's Multiframes), Baby Kitten (Poppy Stamps - received this die-cut kitten from my friend Marion - thank you!)
  • Punch:  Butterfly (EK Success)
  • Patterned paper:  American Crafts
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Accents:  Glittery bunny stickers, flower stickers, gems (Dollarama), charm (my stash)
