Sweet Friend

Hello hello!!
I apologize for being so quiet these last few weeks.  Been working on other projects and attempting to reorganize my supplies.  It's a never ending task, but I always feel like I could have a better set up to be more efficient in my work...not sure that will ever actually happen though but I try :)

So we have a new challenge starting today at Tuesday Throwdown, and it's Facets of Crafting!  We want to see anything that has facets on your creation!  So gems, sequins, glitter...etc.

Our awesome sponsor this week is A Day For Daisies and they have graciously provided the DT with gorgeous images!  I chose to use the super sweet Fairy Kitty image.
Are you surprised I chose a cat image?  Lol...of course you aren't!  Cats are my favorite and I love using them on my cards :)

I wanted to keep this cutie nice and soft.  She just looks so fluffy, I just want to smoosh her in my arms.  So I stuck with only a few light shades of grey for the shading, just enough to give her some depth and dimension without distracting from her cuteness.  Then I took a distress marker in evergreen bough I think...and watercolored in her wings.

I have totally fallen in love with this soft sea foam green.  It's so gorgeous!  Fortunately, I had some glittery ribbon that matched it almost perfectly!!  So I grabbed a square ribbon buckle and layered a couple of ribbons through it for some fun sparkle on the card.  I also added a couple of gems in the upper right corner because it was looking a little too empty up there.

Stamped the sweet sentiment and the card was done!!  Oh right, I added a bunch of stardust stickles to the wings for lots of sparkle :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Craft Your Passion #246-Anything Goes
    Fussy and Fancy #131-Things with Wings
    Robyn's Fetish #247-Animals
    Sentimental Sundays #243-Anything Goes
    Word Art Wednesday #167-Anything Goes

Be sure to stop by Tuesday Throwdown to see the rest of the design teams creations, and then join in the fun!!!

Thanks for visiting! <3
