Floral Feline




Sorry I have been missing. Deadlines and orders are a huge "time suck" right now. Hopefully this Card Eye Candy will make you forget all about my lack of posts.

Now that my dear friend has received her birthday box, I can share a picture of the card I made especially for her. Lots of TLC went into this creation. We share a common love of cats, therefore all her birthday cards must have a kitty. Colored pencils were used to color this image. I then very carefully cut out the image (check out those whiskers!!!) to apply to the center of the card with pop-dots for dimension. The Stampin' Up! Trio Flower punch was used for all the flowers. This punch is fantastic because with one squeeze you get three flowers at once. Stampin' Up! markers were used to add shading/highlighting to the swirls and butterflies.

I hope this sweet kitty brings a smile to your face and brightens your day.

The wreath you created with the swirls and flowers is a perfect frame for the kitty image. Nice!

Those Whiskers are awesome - I can't imagine how hard that was to do and what a steady hand it took. Would love to be able to do that well. Love and Blessings, Linda
