In Case You Were Wondering

I won't be posting any cards for the next couple of weeks because I am recovering from some out-patient surgery.  In my absence, Jenny Flynn is the Guest Designer for the Say It With Scripture Challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Connection.  Be sure to stop by to see her beautiful cards and play along.

I'll be back soon.

Purr-fectly Wonderful Birthday - SNSDC43

The challenge this week at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog is right up my alley.  It's all about cats and dogs.  Since we are owned by 3 cats, of course, I had to choose a cat digi.  :)

I made a gate-fold card this time.  I found a neat tutorial on making a lacey "skirt" behind the image panel over on Beate John's blog in this post.  She also has an easy-to-follow tutorial for making a gate-fold card in the same post. I don't have the same die she used for her skirt so I used my eyelet circle die instead. Here's a side view of the image panel so that you can see the dimension. 

I stacked two of the smaller eyelet circles, cut in two different colors, on top of each other and slightly off-set the scallops to layer behind the sentiment panel. 

Cardstock:  DCWV (Robin), Georgia Pacific (white)
Patterned Paper:  BG (Out of Print)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy (Purr-fect Friend digi set)
Embellishments/Tools:  Ribbon (Michael's), Pearls (Recollections), Spellbinders (Eyelet Circles, Circles-lg & sm), SU Crystal Effects, Signo White Opaque pen (used on cat's nose), Copics

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper Sundae's #109 - Circles
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll play along with us this week.
