Cute kitty with sparkle

I always intend to enter the fortnightly LotV challenge, partly because I adore the LotV stamps I already have, and partly because the challenge always has more fab stamps on offer as prizes :-) ... but somehow the last few weeks have run away with me and I just haven't found the time. However this fortnight I was determined to join in ... so here we are, just in the nick of time!

I really enjoyed working with Bev's fab sketch for this week's LotV Challenge #58 :-)

and would also like to enter this card for the following:

The Stamp Man #2 - Take 2 Colours (lilac & pink)
Simon Says - Sing it Baby ("What's New Pussycat?")
Sir Stampalot (August) - Bring on the Bling

... I have used Stickles on all my roses, sparkly gem centres for the flowers, sparkly "Henbury Lane" paper and organza ribbon with a sparkly silver edge ... here's a closeup to try to show them (not bery successfully unfortunately!)

Main image: LotV "Thomas - Big Bunch of Flowers", coloured with Promarkers, edged with lavender coloured ink and decorated with sparkly gems;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards;
Papers: Papermania "Henbury Lane";
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; curly wild roses, small roses and rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts; white baby's breath flowers and organza ribbon from my stash;
Tools: "Labels Four" nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Doily lace" edge punch.

Such a cute card, Pauline, lovely sketch and sweet image - I find purples and lilacs really difficult to work with, you sure don't - lovely work.

Hi Pauline, I have just been looking through the entries for last month's Crafty Calendar Challenge to choose a GDT for our next challenge. Your cards are beautiful and I was wondering if you would like to be our GDT in September. Perhaps you could email me at christopherthompson622@btinternet.com to let me know please. I look forward to hearing from you.
