Sami Stamps Release - Beautiful Ribbons Card #2

Here is my second card for this Sami Stamps release.  You can see my first card HERE!

For this card, I've used the oh-so-sweet Ribbon Kitty image (which you can get for free with another purchase at Sami's shop right now!)
As you know, I adore kitties.   Having 3 of my own, they are the joy that fills my heart.  And I just want to get more :)  So of course, I had to use this image when I saw it in Sami's release for this week.  I really wanted him to be nestled on top of a heart with a soft background, but none of the papers I had were working.

So I pulled out another stencil that I had made, grabbed a few more distress inks, and altered colors down the chevron pattern to make the background!  Aren't stencils awesome?!  I love that with a few inks, you can have your own custom background that is perfect for your card :)

I covered the background with a piece of vellum to mute down the colors a little bit, and then sewed around the edges for some fun detail.  The heart was cut out with my Silhouette.  I uses some Lawn Fawn papers for that, which matched perfectly to my background!

Then colored in my kitty with my ShinHan markers.  I love his fun fluffy tail!  Again, covered the whole ribbon in glitter pen so it sparkled.  I pieced together a touching sentiment onto a die cut banner from Spellbinders and attached it below the image.

The finishing touch was a few clear sequins sprinkled around the card, with some red gems in the centers.

Be sure to swing by Sami Stamps to see the rest of the release!
