Cozy Kittens

     I'm sure I don't have to tell you how much I adore animal images, especially felines,  :-D  When I saw this freebie from the Stamp of the Month Challenge at From the Heart, I fell in love.  It went right to the top of my priority list.

I based my card on the sketch at I {heart} Sketches
although this time I didn't use the twist.

     I used ProMarkers to color the image and die cut it using a die from Spellbinders.  The blue mat was cut with the same die and I used an embossing folder on it for the Swiss Dots.  I cut the sentiment and its mat with one of my oldest die sets,  In fact, I think those circle dies were the first ones I ever owned.   I embossed the mat for it also.

     The two ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon (both of them new!) and the purple dp came from Paper Studio (also new.)  I left it pretty CAS so that it would work for either a gal or a guy.
