A few weeks ago, my Monday got off to a great start when Deedee from Deedee's Digis emailed me and asked if I'd be part of her Design Team. I was very excited to say, "Yes." What an honor!! Deedee made the official announcement earlier this week and here is my first card as a DT member.
I chose to use this week's $1 Digi, Pocketful of Joy. If you play along with the challenge here and use a Deedee's Digi image, Deedee will send you this digi for free. As soon as I saw this cute stamp, I knew I wanted to paper piece the pocket. As a cat-lover, I thought this little kitty was adorable and I had to color it gray in honor of my own kitty, Sasha.
First, I paper pieced the pocket of the card. After, coloring the kitty with my prismacolor pencils, I cut her out and pieced her on top of the pocket. Then I used my paper piercer to poke "stitch" holes in the edge of the pocket. I made stitches between the holes with my white Uni-Ball Signo pen. I also colored in the ribbons with this white pen. I needed a thank you note for a fellow cat-lover, so I used a sentiment from the Gracious Greetings set. After cutting out & matting my image, I added a bow, flower & brad to the pocket.
I used this week's Stamp TV Sketch challenge for my card.
