Purrfect Thank You

I made this card for the challenge at My Favorite Things this week.  I was really wishing I had the mini tabs die but it's on my wishlist so maybe I'll be able to get it soon.  For this card I used Pure Innocence Purrfect and my new Memory Box papers.  I just love the purples in this paper collection.   I colored this image using Copics. 

Supplies Used: Memory Box card A2 Grape, Pure Innocence Purrfect from My Favorite Things, Scallop Ribbon Border die by My Favorite Things, Copic Markers, Memory Box Viola paper pack.

Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #116

The challenge this week at Kraftin' Kimmie is a sketch challenge.  It also happens to be the first sketch I've attempted.   Most of the sketches seem to look nicer on square cards and all I use is A2 so they are intimidating.  Thanks to the cards of some design team members, I was inspired to try it on an A2 card.  This card felt like it had soooo many layers to me..I am such a clean and simple girl.  I love all the layers but am trying to keep postage costs down since I give them away and don't want people to make an extra trip to the post office.  So anyway, on to the card.  I used Seraphina which is becoming one of my favorite stamps.  My papers are from the Hunt & Gather pad by Kaisercraft.  Seraphina was colored with copics, fussy cut and then popped up a pop dot (what you don't know here is that she was originally on the same piece as the quote but I stamped the quote upside down and had to cut her out instead lol).  The  border was done using a ribbon border die from My Favorite Things. I hope I came close to the sketch.   Thanks for looking and I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.
