Loves Mew!

Hi again!
I'm back with a quick share :)
I know, I know...I'm on a cat kick right now...bare with me.  I just love kitties so much that I can't help but put them on my cards, and Newton's Nook is just the cure for my addiction :)
I had this card design pop into my head late one night just as I was about to fall asleep...yeah it is kind of annoying that my best ideas usually come to me when I have nothing to jot them down I had to try and remember it till I could make notes someplace.  Then it was time to get to work!

The idea came from remembering when I was younger and had new kittens around my house all the time.  They would run and play in my mom's flower beds all day long.  My sweet hubby was so kind in letting me purchase the new Gleeful Gardens stamp set from Lawn Fawn last weekend, and I thought this cute little daisy image would work perfect for my flower garden.

I did a bunch of masking on this card!  Since the challenge at Newton's Nook is one layer, masking was a must.  But who doesn't love masking?  It creates the coolest scenes!  I tucked my little kitty (from Newton's Antics) into the flowers, and colored him in like our sweet Storm.

My first attempt at this card was messed up when I decided to try and do a black glitter embossed frame around the whole image...which resulted in warped paper and a bunch of black dust around the edges...really irritated me.  So I tried again, and this time just used a black Wink of Stella pen for my border.  Much cleaner :)

So so sweet!!  And the sentiment just makes me smile :)  Can't help but think "aww!"

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    2 Cute Ink #124-Spring
    Addicted to Stamps #134-Clean and Simple
    Less is More #213-This makes me happy!  (Definitely the kitty, but the flowers too!)
    Newton's Nook #18-Just One Layer

Anyhow, thanks for visiting again today!  Have a great weekend!! <3
