You're So Special


Hi everyone!  The layout for today's elegant card was inspired by this week's OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #48.  I've had the patterned paper for some time now, apparently for a very long time as it doesn't say on the backside who it is by, sorry!  The cute image is a stamp by Stampendous and the sentiment is by Hero Arts.


My card base is Basic Black layered with PTI White then a piece of patterned paper.  I trimmed one edge of a strip of Basic Black using the Eyelet Border Punch and layered Rose Red over it.  The image was stamped on PTI White and colored in using copic markers.  I layered them on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black before attaching to the card base with mounting tape.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.  To embellish the card I added some silver rhinestones beside the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
