Cat Lover

Hello Bloggers, 

Today is the beginning of challenge #64 at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.

I am a cat lover from the word go. Have had cats in my life since I was around 3. So when I saw this cute image over at Peppercus, I knew I just had to use it on my project. This design is called Cat with Flower Vase #E0027.

Recently I saw a few cards in the step card design and since I have a few different dies that cut step cards, I thought I'd use that as my card shape. This one is a tall center step card and I love it because it fits in a 4 1/4" X  5 1/2" envie.

On the center and the side portions of this card, I used some of my  Gelli Plate papers for those spots. On that bottom section of the card front, 
I used glitter paper that is a color that went with my Gelli Plate papers.flower stems in the water.
How cool is that!!
Made my own yellow flowers and placed then on the sides of the card. 

Used a cat embellishment that was perfect for the card front.
Added a pink butterfly to the bouquet. 
I also colored the vase to show a bluish water and I just drew some flower stems in the water.

Stamps:  Digi image - Peppercus - Cat with Flower Vase
Paper/Card Stock
:White CS, (My own Gelli Plate Papers)
Ink: Memento - Black Marker
Dies Used: Accu-cut  - A-2 Card Step, Spellbinders Circle Die
Accessories: Elizabeth Crafts - Glitter Dots, 
dimensional foam, Cat Embellishments, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers- various colors

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project. Hope you will link a project in the monthly challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends. Don’t forget the theme every month is always Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I will be back soon!
