Time for a Cuppa :-) ,,,, purrfect !!

I made this card following Dawn B's lovely sketch on the Inspirational Card Sketch Challenge :-) It also qualifies for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge whose theme is 'So Charming'



The image is one I bought from Pink Gem Designs and is called Cat with Cuppa. I coloured it with prisma pencils and blended with odourless spirit. I added copics glitter pens to a few areas for sparkly and some flower soft dotted around in the grass ;-) The background was coloured with chalk for a soft look :-)



The flower is prima, the leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart punch and finished off with a dragonfly charm.
The papers are from a brand new paper download from Funky Fairys Papercrafts this one is called Add a Splash of Colour a bargain at £5.99 ,,, it is fantastic !! :-)

Janet at Pink Gem has a blog candy :-) We have a chance to win 6 stamps and she is looking for a Guest designer too so pop over to see what the rules are :-)

Thanks for looking ,,, please leave a comment so I know you've been to visit :-) Also I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a look :-)
