Kitty


 Hi!  It's Friday once again, and that means it is time for another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week, the challenge is "All Sewn Up"; use stitching--real or faux--on your project.  The sponsor this week is Fred She Said and the prize is a $15 gift certificate to the store!  You'll have to check it out, 'cause there are some seriously cute images.  On my card I used this adorable kitty with ornament image. I added the tree branches with Verve's "Ornamental Christmas" set; I thought the ornament needed something from which to hang. Now you may be wondering where the stitching is on my card.  Well, check out the close up picture below: I did some hand stitching (anything not to have to pull out the sewing machine!).  I stitched the ornament string/bow and added a snowflake to the ornament itself.  Then I also stitched the kitty's whiskers and added French knots for the eyes.  Just a little bit of fun detail to add some interest.
Go check out the CSAYL blog to see the projects from the other designers and link up your project, too (make sure there is some stitching somewhere on it!).

Pretty Pattern #71--sketch
Pretty Palette #71--pink, wasabi, red and gray
Creative Inspirations #181--Christmas in September

Supplies:
Paper: DCWV Christmas pack
CS: PTI ripe avocado

I like the sweet touch of stitching on the ornament! The image is cute as well- what cat is not distracted by dangling things? Thanks for sharing with us at MTME pretty palette!
