Elementary My Dear Kitten!

I absolutely love Crafty Secrets Stamps. This adorable kitten is from one of the newest sets called, Cutie Cats.

My granddaughter Molly is going to Kindergarten next Fall, and I think this cute card will be a keepsake for her.

The kitty is raised, and the fence is embossed with copper embossing powder.

I am entering this in some challenges, and one is Case Study Challenge;  here is the card by Kristii Lockart: 


To make this card I used paper, cs, and ribbon from CTMH. All old stuff... I used four stamp sets by Crafty Secrets: Cutie Cats, Hardware, Art Studio and Garden Girls. No! Make that 5 sets...I forgot that the little bird is from Fairy Wishes.

I added this crayon box at the last minute. The card was missing something. Love the colors of the a real crayon box. Perfect. The gingham ribbon is something I use alot.

I love this little bird. I use these little guys often to balance a design. Prismacolor Pens were used and the clouds are made with an old CTMH stencil and chalks.

My granddaughter Molly really is a "Smarty Cat" and will love this card. Oh yes, I can't forget the primary color eyelets in the corners!

Here are the challenges I am entering with this card:
