Sketch and Stash Challenge,,,, Cat Wedding !




This is my 2nd and final card as GD for this challenge. This fab sketch is by Becky. As my last card for this challenge was using my new stash I thought I really should use old and neglegted stash for this one. The cat stamp is from an Australian company called 'Stamp-It' and is one of my first ever buy's, I used to colour it with orange and brown embossing pens ughughugh!! I don't have a photo ( fortunately I can hear you all saying ha ha ) otherwise I would have given you all a good laugh :-)The angel hair I bought at the same time, and obviously I haven't used it cos I still have loads of it ! I do like it though. I layered that over silver stardream card and secured it at the back. I decided to make this card into a Wedding card for cat lovers ! Hence the girly cat with pearls and the tom cat with a dickie bow :-)
The flowers were made on my cricut, I really don't know what I would do without that gadget !! The brads are papermania.
I would just like to add that I have loved being a GD on this challenge, Becky is a lovely girl and has given me alot of encouragement, go and see the cards the DT have made they are just fabulous :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so PLEASE leave me one :-)
Lorraine.

What a purrfect card for a couple who loves cats. Love your take on the sketch and what you have done with the cats. I have a stamp very similar and it's given me some inspiration.
