I LOVE Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch 65 - see: http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/2...y-week-65.html and is my 1st ever post to one of their galleries. I knew as soon as I saw the sketch that I would use my gorgeous new Margaret Sherry cat stamp.
Using pale plum cs, layer with burgundy cs then flower dp making sure you round the corners of each layer, then put aside. Stamp cats with Stazon black ink onto watercolour paper and colour with JoSonya acrylic paints using watercolouring technique. When dry, add Kindyglitz to the envelope, petals and present. Round corners with punch and adhere image to burgundy cs and punch hole on top lhs to thread ribbon thru and tie in bow. Attach to dp with 1mm mounts and glue on flower gem to corner. Stamp sentiment onto watercolour paper with burgundy pigment ink and emboss with clear eb. Round corners and layer onto burgundy cs. Add gems and attach to dp with 1mm mounts. Thks Julee for the inspiration, andTFL!

This dp is one of my all time faves I think. I bought about 5 sheets of it. This is an adorable card. Love the image, great coloring, wonderful layout! Lovely sparkly ribbon and the bit of sparkle you added in the image is perfect! TFS. : )
