I used this adorable image from Crafty Sentiments Designs and her name is Annabel - Summertime.
This card is one of my favorites of all times. It has everything on it that I love, with the exception of lace. I loved this paper from Basic Grey because of the small pattern and the colors. I even used it as the background on my Elizabeth Design's butterfly diecut. I used a Spellbinders die around my image that has been out for a long time, but one I just purchased. The flowers are from both Wild Orchid and my local lace warehouse. The seam binding is from a local convention and the button in the center of the bow is a new purchase and it came with the twine in the button holes and adhesive on the back! Last week I purchased this sentiment set from Make-It-Crafty. I love the set since I always felt redundant putting "Happy Birthday" on the front of my card AND on the inside. The rhinestones are from Queen & Co. I added Stardust Stickles to the edges of my flowers, the flowers in Annabel's hair and on her kitty's hair bow. I used Warn Glitter Ritz on the filigree of my butterfly.
Annabel and her kitty are colored with Copics and I used a gel pen to add the polka dots to her dress. I love this kitty. It's got such a cute face and I'm happy with how my gray kitty colored up. I'm not very good at coloring animals and have been practicing my dog and cat coloring for the past couple of weeks. My trash can is full of rejects.
