Stamps R Us Challenge today - Sponsored by Di's Digis

Let see if I remember how to post on my blog, lol.  School's finally out for this semester, Did well in both Nursing classes.  Just have a simpler online class over the summer before starting up again in August.

I see Blogger went AWOL for a couple of days as well.

Today's challenge over at Stamps R Us is sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads.  So many cute images over there, it was VERY hard for me to choose.  In the end, I picked this Scruffy Kitty Kaboodle.  I used both my Copics and prismacolored pencils with Gamsol for the coloring. 

The card is actually 4.25 x 6.5 inches.  I used burgundy mats for all as well as the butterflies.  I used a Sizzix embosslet and detailed with a clear glitter gel pan before mounting them up on dimensionals.  The sentiment is from a stamp I got from the dollar bin at my local scrapbook store (think it's Hero Arts).  I punched the sentiment out with my SU oval & scalloped oval punches before mounting them up as well.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey's Olivia paper pack. Finished off with a slip of burgundy satin ribbon.

This card was just the ticket for me to get back in the groove again!  Look out, here I come!  Now, I need to remember how to edit my pics without making them too washed out, lol.

Thanks for stopping by.  Make sure you head over to Stamps R Us to see what the rest of the Stamps R Us design team came up with.
