Purrfect Friend in pink and brown

Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to be one of the Guest Designers this month for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Today I'll be showing the first card I've made using some of the digital stamps that S'nS offers.

One of the sets that I chose for my guest designer stint is Purrfect Friend because I'm a cat lover and I also have a lot of friends that are cat lovers, as well. I'm going to get a ton of use out of this set. I already have the person picked out that this card is going to be sent to. One of my best friends that lives overseas in Belgium. We may have an ocean separating us, but that doesn't keep our friendship from growing. She can't have a cat where she lives, but she absolutely adores them, so this card will be the next best thing to having a cat to cuddle and it will also show her just how much she means to me.

I printed out my digi stamps and then used my Copic markers to color the kitty in. I never used to be a pink lover, but I've always liked shades of brown. Over the last couple of years, I've really come to like this color combo together. And this kitty looks so cute in pink and brown.

I used a scalloped circle punch to punch out a bunch of circles in caramel cardstock and snipped them in half to layer them behind the kitty to make a scalloped border. I used pop-dots to give it some height on my card. Some patterned paper and a little bit of pink and brown grosgrain ribbon finished my card off.

I'm looking forward to showing you my next creations next Saturday when I post again!
