What's New Pussycat?

I love these funky little cats! The inspiration for the fun layout was a Sketch Challenge from Jen del Muro. Thanks Jen! So on to the card details... I stamped the kitty and then drew a circle in pencil using a nestie die to trace the edge, then I trimmed the circle leaving the whiskers poking out. I added a few circle layers under the kitty images to help them stand out. The sentiment and the Flourish border I stamped and added a little Light Olive Copic to bring in the green color from my paper. The Flourish Border Tile is one stamp then I sliced it in two pieces using one on top of the card and the other on the bottom edge. I used a little strip of black Rainbow tape to help define the edge of the border. Some little black sticky dot embellishments and a little bow....Done. Finished card size is an A2.

  2. this would be a great "man card" the colors are perfect...but I don't think they would appreciate the detail on the cat whiskers etc LOL.

  3. I absolutely love this card! And the stamps - I feel the urge to spend coming on (LOL).
