Purrfect Friend

Hello, everyone.  Welcome to my newest follower - Annie Sharland - so happy to see you!  And thank you to all my faithful followers - your comments warm my heart! 

Today I am sharing a card I made with an adorable freebie image from Gerda Steiner Designs called Best Friends.  It's the June image for Gerda's progressive challenge - so cute!  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.

Here are the other items used:
  • Digi sentiment:  Doodle Pantry (Kitty Bouquet set)
  • Dies:  Leaves (Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents), Sunflower (Die-namics), Spellbinders Ironwork Accents, Heart Banner (Whiff of Joy Die-Lights - won this in some candy from my lovey friend, Marion - thank you!), butterfly (Cheery Lynn), circle (Nellie's Multiframes), cat (Impression Obsession)
  • Stamp:  Leaves (Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents)
  • Ink:  Stampin' Up Certainly Celery for leaves, Apricot Appeal for sponging sentiment
  • Designer Paper:  MME In Bloom
  • Accents:  Crinkle Ribbon (won in a challenge - thank you, Karen), washi tape, butterfly mould (from my lovely friend, Marion - thank you), flower (Michaels), ribbon flower, charm, metallic 3-D butterfly, gems (all from my stash)
