Have A Purrrfect Day


Hi everyone! I've got a super cute card to share with you today. I'm playing along with this week's "Animal Antics" challenge at Die Cut Dreams. The grey cat, sentiment and digital paper are all from the Quirky Cat digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.


It is a little easier to see in this side view photo that I punched three layers of grass, two are behind the cat and one is on top. I love these crystal flourishes because they remind me of a cat curling it's tail. To embellishment the card I added some white grosgrain ribbon and pearl dew drops.

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

What a gorgeous card Karen! I love the way you use markers and your shading. That will never happen for me, so I just admire everyone that can do that :) The cat reminds me of our gray & white cat that left us way to soon.
