Thinking of You - Stripes

Hey Everyone!
  I made a little kitty card this week for the Meljens Design challenge.  This is a new image Kitty Love that Melissa designed.  I just love it - as I love me some kitties.  I colored both in Copics.  The sentiment is also a Meljen stamp in a freebie pack you get when you join Paper Craft Planet.  I thought the picture and the sentiment went well together.  I colored them both to match this CUTE Basic Grey paper called Max & Whiskers.  It's a whole line of pet paper.  The point of this weeks challenge was to use stripes in your card.  I used the striped paper from Max & Whiskers and I also used the kitty stamp that has stripes!  I inked all my edges in Stampin' Ups Close to Cocoa. 

I also added a few little eyelets to my ribbon - it wasn't easy to string them on - but I love the way it looks with the paper.  Once I had the layers on I popped the digital images.  A quick card but I love these color combos!
Enjoy!

  3. What a cute card Melissa, great colors and I agree, Meljen's has the cutest images! (Now I just need to get me some copics, lol!) I also love the way you strung the eyelets on your ribbon, I'm going to do that on the next thing I make (hope you don't mind!) I have soooooo many and never use them but what a cute idea! TFS
