Spring Friends

Hi everyone! It's time again for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage. As always, there are two parts to the challenge and you may choose either or both to play along with. We have a fun new sketch and this week's theme is "Buttons, Brads and Bows". My card highlights the Spring Friends rubber stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.

My card base is So Saffron layered with White Cardstock then patterned stitched around the edges.  The shadow layer is also So Saffron with another patterned paper from the Gertie Collection.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  To embellish the card I added a couple buttons threaded with DMC White, a bow made with organdy ribbon and antique gold flower brads.

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

How lovely is this! I wanted to thank you for starting Feline Playful; it's such a wonderful resource. I don't know how you ever did it alone! I also wanted to thank you for inspiring my very first cat-themed card, which I made for the FP blog hop. I'm following your blog, so I can keep up on your gorgeous work :)
