The Crafty Pad Challenge #115 - Flowers




Hello!! Guess What??!! I have been asked to be a guest designer this month over at The Crafty Pad's Challenge Blog, and I couldn’t be more flattered! This is my first gig!!


The Challenge this week is 'flowers' and I used this adorable image called ‘Cat in Window’ from The Crafty Pad, which you can find here. The sponser this week is Crafty Emma's Store. Hope you can join in!

For my card I wanted to use this pretty paper - Mabel by My Mind's Eye Stella Rose Collection and I used The Sweet Stop's Sketch 98. I thought the sentiment from CTMH's Sensational Season was perfect. Did you notice I paper peiced the curtains? I thought it provided so much more interest than just colouring them. Not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I used a bit of my Spica Clear Glitter pen on the flowers and the heart on the kitty's chest.

Paper: My Mind's Eye Mabel, Stampin Up Crumb Cake and Not Quite Navy
Stamp: My Crafty Pad's Cat in Window (Digital), CTMH Sensational Season
Ink: Copics, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo DistDistress Ink, SU Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Stampin Up Scallop Punch, CTMH Pearl Opaques, Prisma flowers , Spica Clear Glitter Pen
This card is dedicated to Su Ling and Mingo (my two Siamese Cats who are no longer with me).
I'm entering this card in Paper Sundaes Challenge #63 Spring Blossoms and Catch the Bug's Anything Goes as well.

Beautiful card Caroline. You colouring with your copics is spectacular. I also love the paper piercing that you did and the pearls around the cats neck. It is all simply lovely. Great card!
