This was a super fun card to make for my lovely DIL's birthday, and I was able to use my new Penny Black "Uplifting Occasion" stamp...isn't it darling. I also decided to use a Starburst bg to add lots of pattern, and I colored my kitty with Copics. My final step was to spritz my card with my Bath & Body Works Diamond Shimmer Mist (oh, my how delicious it smells)!
I am able to enter it into seven SCS challenges:
*The Featured Stamper FA392 - My special day is: National "Let It All Hang Out" Day.
*Three of the July Dirty Girls' Monthly Themes:
#CT-0717 - Time to Relax - what you'd like to do to relax.
#WORD0717 - make your card using the word NAPS. N=Nestabilities; A=Aroma (my card is spritzed with an aromatic shimmer); P=Penny Black stamp; S=Sponging (two ray patterns are sponged to make color matches).
#DINSP0717 - hammock inspiration photo...perfect for my PB stamp!
And, two Alphabet Challenges, Round 7:

LOL! How cute is this? I love the purplish hues and your background. I can still remember hanging clothes out on a clothesline. That kitty found a perfect nesting place. You did a beautiful job coloring your image. TFS!

Carlene, it doesn't get any better than this! How sweet is this "little" kitty relaxing in the laundry on the line. It is as darling as darling gets. Your quilted sunburst background is really beautiful and truly draws the eye to the image panel. Your DIL is going to flip when she sees this gorgeous card you have made for her. Great job and making this card fit so many challenges too! Fun! ~Karen.
