Sentimental Sundays - a recipe

It's a recipe time today at Sentimental Sundays and it's quite straightforward:
One solid paper
2 Patterned Papers
3 Embellishments
(plus a sentiment)

But I managed to mess it up anyway - stuck down some gems and when I realized I had gone over the embellies limit it was too late to do something!

I am using a brand new image from Whimsy Stamps - it's Meljens love cats. They suited my idea perfectly and were quite fast to colour up - my time limit for making that card was quite stress inducing!

And while on subject of Whimsy Stamps - did you know the big news yet??? On September 8th, Whimsy Stamps will be introducing a new product line: CUSTOM RUBBER STAMPS.  Here's a little blinkie with some info as well as some sneak peaks of a few of the new designs.  On September 8th, you can visit THIS PAGE to find all the available designs!



I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Crafty Emma - flowers
SFYTT - sketch
Crafty Calendar (monthly) - blue and optional to use flowers
Paper Romance - furry friends
Paper Take Weekly - just one of something excluding the image (button)


Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

This is lovely. I love yuor ckitties and the paper flowers. I really need to learn how to make them. Nice job.:-)
You're right about the pencils. I had to keep getting my sharpener a break cos it was overheating!! I started doing them by hand because you take off less pencil that way, but 120??
But talk about good deal, I got them on AMazon.com for $79.99 (that's like 45 pounds).
So you have the same problem with the lid, huh? Its very frustrating, now I'm on the lookout for various pencil cases, those zip up leather ones perhaps....(you know, blow everything I saved by buying the set!) LOL

Hi!:-D
I do 6x6 cards too. You don't see the seam (from my embossing folder) because I covered it with the ribbon. :-) I love working 6x6. It just gives you elbow room.
Yes, I had to be careful with that story so as to not offend anyone. :-)
