Christmas Cats - LOTV New Release

Challenges

Lili Of The Valley (61) - Sketch
Creative Card Crew - Sparkle & Shine
A Spoonful Of Sugar (117) - Christmas In August
Passion For Promarkers (65) - Winter Blue
ABC - B is for Blue
The Creative Cottage (21) - Christmas

M.A.W.T.T. (60) - Glitter

This has got to be my very favourite of the new Christmas Animal stamps released today by Lili Of The Valley. Don't you just love these cute little kitties?

Having decided to make an easel card using Bev's fantastic sketch, I have coloured the image with Promarkers and a Sakura Stardust pen adding flocking to the hat. I then glittered the edges (seem to be making a habit of this lately). I embossed a blue panel of card with a CB embossing folder, added a strip of white card which I punched with a MS border punch and then added some glittery ribbon. I copied this for the base of the card. I stamped and layered a sentiment complete with glittered edges and placed this on the base. To finish it off I punched, glittered and layered some flowers and leaves placing flower gems in the centres. Some of the flowers have replaced the corners and bow on the sketch. I hope you like this card as much as I do.
