Cute kitty and multi-congratulations

One of my closest friends has just recently finished some important post-graduate exams for which she had been working hard all year, and she told me yesterday that she had passed them all - yippee! So I decided to make her a card to congratulate her , and this cute LotV kitty came straight to mind. I also decided to attempt a multiple challenge card with it ... so here we go :-)

I followed the sketch for this week's Papertake Weekly, as it seemed perfect for the image and colour scheme I had in mind.

I also made this card for

Creative Craft - What a Glamour Puss
BasicGrey #30 - Sparkle!
(kitty and mousey are drinking sparkling champagne, and I have glamour dusted the bubbles, stickled the flowers, and added pink gems)
Creative Cottage #24 - Bling it On!
One Stop Craft Challenge #100 - Congratulations
Stamp Something - Something to Celebrate (entry #2)
Wild Orchid Challenge #6 - Ribbons & Bows
Craft Garden (October) - Pink Ribbon, Lace or Yarn
I love Promarkers #34 - Pearls & Swirls
(my paper is swirly, and I have added swirl die cuts to the sides of the flowers instead of leaves)
Paper Sundaes #38 - Something From Your Stash (that would be the ribbon)
Stamptacular Sunday #79 - Layer it on (at least 5 layers ) ...
I reckon at its thickest point mine has got ten ... base card/pink card/paper/raffia lace/ribbon/pink card/paper/pink card mat /pink paper/image card.
Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy #61 - Anything Goes

... and here's a closeup of my WOC flowers stickled to within an inch of their lives lol!

Main image: LotV "Thomas - Champagne", coloured with Promarkers & decorated with glamour dust;
Sentiment: die cut using Cuttlebug cut'n'emboss set "Everyday greetings";
Paper: BasicGrey "Two Scoops";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; raffia lace from Hobbycraft; pearls from The Hobby House; ribbons & gems from my stash;
Tools: Cuttlebug cut'n'emboss set "Everyday greetings"; Marianne D Creatables "Ribbon flower" set used for leaf swirls.

Just off now for another little crafty sesh .. hope everyone is having a good weekend.
