Happy Wednesday!   I have a fun, colorful card to share today.  I am joining the team at The Color Throwdown as a Guest Star Stamper this week.   I just love these beautiful colors!  I am also playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #259.  We are to pick a sketch from the past!  I picked #184 and flipped it to make a vertical card.

 As soon as I saw the soft gray as an option, I just knew which stamp set I was going to "knead" to use!  I started with MFT card stock in  smooth white, gumdrop green, and grape jelly.

My card base is smooth white.  I die cut a gumdrop and grape jelly card stocks with Blueprints 13 stitch frame.  I stamped the gumdrop green with pinstripe background using gumdrop green ink.  I stamped the grape jelly using houndstooth background with versamark creating a more distressed subtle stamped image.  I cut the grape jelly panel from corner to corner.  I lined the diagonal with a tiny stripe of smooth white peeking out.   I glued the entire background to the smooth white base using foam mounting tape.  

For the focal point, I die cut pierced circle stax in smooth white and  stamped with sentiment from Totally Happy using hybrid black licorice ink.  Then, I die cut the kitty in a box image from I Knead You die namics using Neenah Solar White card stock.  I stamped the coordinating image from I Knead You stamp set in Hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I colored with copics.    I used foam mounting tape to attach to the pierced circle stax for some added dimension.  I also used some more foam mounting tape to pop up the pierced circle element.  These are the cutest kitties ever!  Well, aside from the real thing, of course!

To comply with sketch elements, I die cut the stitched sentiment strip from Blueprints 20.  I cut to fit on card.  I added a layered die cut button from Blueprints 18 in gumdrop green.  I threaded with some white thread.  I finished my card with a few touches of silver sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
