Guest Designer for Nicecrane Designs

Hi, everybody!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Kathy - thank you for joining me!

I have some exciting news to tell you!  This month I will be a guest designer for Nicecrane Designs! I adore Ignacio's wonderful images and digis, so this is a real pleasure!  My card features kitties from the Vintage Funny Kittens set.  I sponged around the edges with distress ink to give it a vintage look. I had a lot of fun adding crafty bits from my stash.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Dies:  Cat (All Occasion Dies), bird (Impression Obsession)
  • Patterned paper:  Jungle-print  kraft (Recollections), ruler (MME Kraft Fun Day)
  • Digital element:  Freebie Scrabble tiles (The Computer Scrapbook - thank you!) 
  • Baker's twine:  My Craft Spot
  • Sentiments:  Dymo label maker and alphabet labels
  • Accents:  Lace, butterfly trim, buttons, and charms from my stash

I would like to support the following challenges:
