For my card today I used an image from the darling new Playful Kittens stamp set. Again this card works wonderful for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge. Some of my favorites on this card include Washi Tape, Patterned paper, Wee images, Rhinestones and Copic Markers.

The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a 3 1/4″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The bottom corner were rounded and the image was colored with Copic Markers (Kitten: C00, N0, N1, N2, R000, R20     Scarf: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, YR09, R24, R29, R39      Ground: YG01, YG03, YG17    Butterfly: YG01, BG10, BG11, BG13).

Two 3 1/4″ wide strips of Echo Park So Happy Together paper were sanded and adhered to the top of the image layer. The edges were stitched and two pieces of Washi Tape were adhered to the left hand side of the patterned paper strips. A green button was tied on with silver cord.

A sentiment from the Playful Kittens set was stamped on a scrap piece of paper. It was cut into banner shape and adhered under the paper strips. Stardust Glitter was added over the butterfly wings and rhinestones above the button and to the right hand side of the card.

To be entered into today’s mini blog hop prize draw, be sure to leave a comment on ALL of the DT posts listed below by 12.00pm EST tomorrow:
