Feline Creative Sketch #1 (FCsketch001)

Hi everyone! I'm back with another cute puppy dog card.  I've been shopping online and got some fun new goodies to play with.   The film strip is from My Favorite Things as is the die cut bone. 

My card base is light blue cardstock layered with dark brown cardstock and paw print patterned paper. I wrapped white crochet thread around the patterned paper and dark brown cardstock before adhering to the card base. Next I die cut the film strip using brown cardstock and added a strip of white cardstock behind it stamped with smaller paw prints.

 The larger paw print was stamped on white cardstock using vintage photo distress ink and fussy cut with my scissors. The bone was die cut from dark brown cardstock. Around the edges of the patterned paper and image I distressed using vintage photo distress ink.

I really like this card design and decided to start a collection of favorite sketches. When I'm inspired by a sketch or card I like to doodle on a small white board so I'm able to carry my ideas from the computer to my craft room. After making this card I drew the sketch on my small white board so I could take a photo of it to share. I'll also add a link to my sketches at the top of my blog. If you are inspired by any of my sketches please leave a link to your project so I'm able to check it out.  I've a couple other projects in mind inspired by this same sketch.

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