Thankful Kitty

I started this card out just with the awesome sketch challenge and the other challenges kept jumping in! Somehow I managed to combine TEN challenges in one card. WAHOO! I love this color combination and thought these sweet kitties would be perfect to peek out of the ‘flowers’. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Sketch Inspiration TCP Tuesday Challenge ~ Sketch

Color Inspiration
Pals Paper Art Challenge #15 ~ Color Challenge: Ruby Red, Taken with Teal, Basic Grey
365 Cards Day 250 ~ Dream Duo (use two of your favorite colors – I chose Teal and Rust)

365 Cards Day 5 ~ Thankful It’s Thursday (Thank you note you could make a lot of)
Paper Play Challenge #40~ Parlez Vous (Any language but English)
My verse loosely translates to ‘Thank you for your friendship’.
I added the bling as the last step. I’d already used my Spica’s to glitz up the flowers, but felt like the card was missing something. Add in 10 sparkly gems and VOILA!

My Creation

Image Detail
I colored the cats with Copics and added Spicas to the flowers. The sentiment is popped up for dimension. I should have spaced out my ribbon a bit as it barely peeks out from behind the images.
