Sunday's Bits & Pieces #5


Is it really Sunday already?? Sunday means tomorrow is Monday and its back to work! So i'm going to enjoy today to the fullest, especially with the nice weather we have been have lately! :)

Today's card was inspired by Barb's photo here:

She is having a great inspiration challenge: Barbles Challenge #2, make sure you check it out, it ends 1/31.  From the photo i took the grey of the cat and looked through my scrap papers and found a real nice dark red/pink pattern paper and a solid piece that went well with the grey cardstock i had. I looked through my cat stamps but didn;t really find anything that would work for the idea forming in my head.

Instead i used an outline flower and stamped it 3 times on the pattern paper and cut each out. With the card stock i cut a couple stripes and notched one end on each stripe. Then i lightly inked the bottom edges of the stripes along with inking the flower edges.

For my grey cardbase i inked up a background stamp with versamark. I added the stripes and then the flowers with pop up dots. Last i added grey pearl embellishments to each flower center.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Sunday!
