Sami Stamps Release - Persian Kitty Cuteness

It's Friday, it's Friday!!!
I hope the day has started off fabulously for everyone!

We have a soft and fuzzy new release for you today over at Sami Stamps.  This one touched my heart because I just love my kitties, and Sami drew us a whole release full of them!

I chose to use Persian Kitty #2.  I had to do a little searching online to get some coloring ideas because I didn't want to just have a white cat on my card.  It may not be the exact coloring of a Persian, but I still love how it looks.  Reminds me of my little kitty that I had when I was younger.  Her name was PurrBox because that's all she did was purr :)
This card turned out very soft and it!  That wasn't the plan but it sort of went off in that direction on its own, so I rolled with it.  I tried something a little different with the background.  Instead of just using an embossing folder to get texture, I tried out one of my stencils.  Ran it through my Cuttlebug with one of those rubber mat things to see if I could get a good impression of the stencil pattern, since I really wanted that pattern on my card.  And it worked!  It wasn't a strong impression, just subtle enough to know it was there.  I decided to go back over it again with some vanilla ink just to highlight it a little more too.

The punched border is from Martha Stewart and I paired it with some pretty striped paper to go along with the new challenge we have started at Sami Stamps :)

For the image, I wasn't entirely sure how I wanted to put it on the card.  My first thought was to have some sort of bed of flowers behind it so that the kitty was just sitting in a flower garden.  But none of the flower images I had really worked all that well.  I pulled stuff off my desk and laid it on the card, trying several things, until I pulled one of my left over circle frames over and tried that.  It clicked!  I wanted it to have a wooden feel though, so I cut 3 layers out of some Kraft cardstock and then lightly inked them in brown for some dimension.

Printed and colored up my kitty, and used an image from a previous release (Spring Branch) for a little floral decoration on the circle.  A few pearls, and a sweet sentiment from Winnie & Walter, and it was done!!  I adore how this card turned out!!

Now, run over to Sami Stamps, check out the rest of this cuddle worthy release, and then join in our Stripes challenge!!
