Kitten Cuddles

     This image from Ppinkydolls was the freebie for the May Progressive challenge at The Outlawz and you know I fell in love with it!


     I decided on a CAS design with very limited embellishments.  I colored the image with my ProMarkers plus I added sparkle gel ink to her wings.  The top wing is layered on with Pop Dots for a bit of dimension.  Then I used my largest square die (Spellbinders) to cut it.  I added a piece of sheer ribbon to the image piece and layered that onto a blue card base so that it looks framed or matted.  The butterfly is double layered with one colored and the other one white with a gem for a bit of sparkle.

     Wouldn't this make a perfect get well card for a child?

Love the CAS style card and the image is so nicely colored. Gorgeous shade of blue on your ribbon. The butterfly is sweet as can be. Hope your Mother's Day went swimmingly. Have a terrific week ahead.
