I love you kitty....

Hi, Susan here again, wishing you all a happy day today.

I have used a great sketch and colour scheme for this card from Truly Scrumptious, I love cream and pink together they are a gorgeous combination in my mind. haha!! And just right for a great girly card.

The backing papers are from Nitwits and some from our stash. I have distressed all the edges and glittered them, well you have to have glitter when its a girly card, don't you!!!!

The ribbon is from our local market.

This little girl with her kitty is from High Hopes, its one of our new aquisitions, we fell for her straight away!

I coloured her in with Pro-Markers and then inked the background, before distressing the edges and glittering them to match the backing papers.

I think I caught the glitter bug from Emma with this card. My flowers are a mixture of my own handmade one and some from Wild Orchid Crafts. I glittered all the edges, and also found some small crystal blossoms in our stash and added these in the spaces.

This is my handmade flower made from pink and cream card, I made it using a five petal punch, the centre is a clump of flower stamens. You can see the crystal blossoms clearer here.

The sentiment is made using the computer, the background was inked in pink, I mat and layered it on cream and pink, then I distressed the edges and glittered them to match the rest of the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges....

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
