Sugar and Spice - Crafty Creations Challenge #82

Hey Everyone,
  This week at Crafty Creations Challenge blog we had did a 3-2-1.  I love this challenge so be sure to participate if you can - just click here.  Here are the simple rules:  Use 3 different papers, two different ribbons and add one charm!  The rest is up to you!  Our sponsor this week is Mo's Digital Pencil!  I don't know about you, but I just love her stamps!!  I used one of my favorites called Patience.  She also has one called Tolerance and it's a little boy!  I love this stamp because it so reminds me of both my daughters - they love kitties and our poor kitty, Mercury, takes her fair share of pick me ups - however, she is less then patient!  LOL! 
I colored this image with my Copics (a great site for tutorials is Color Me Copic).  Usually, I color and then pick out my papers so once I colored her, I set her aside and picked out these cute papers from my Cricut stack, Doodlecharms.  Remember, we had to use three papers - so I picked a great purple that matched the little girls shirt, a flowered patterned that matched the one charm I wanted to use, and some stripes that matched everything! 

I layered the papers together on my card.  Next, I added a bit of white ribbon down the were two of my papers came together.  My second ribbon, I added to the charm for a collar around the kitty's neck.  Finally, I adhered the image onto my card. and added a few nail heads and a sticker sentiment to finish up my 3,2,1 card!  Don't forget to stop by Crafty Creations and join in on the fun - you could win a gift certificate to Mo's Digital Pencil!!
