You're Purr-fect! - Kate's ABC's

Believe it or not, I have gone all of this time without owning the fabulous "Kate's ABCs" cartridge!  I can't believe I didn't buy this sooner!  I was in the mood to use soft, muted colors today.  Maybe I am just wishing for Spring, sigh . . .

This card was highlighted in the Cricut Chirp this week!


The blue background and brown paper are from Crate Paper and all other papers are from My Minds Eye.


I lightly inked all of the edges with Walnut ink.  Then sponged glossy accents on the dress and flower, then sprinkled with a bit of Stampendous ultrafine glitter. 


I pulled my sewing machine out  to zig-zag stitch around the edges.  I should remember to do this more often! The twine is from American Crafts.


 The sweet little girl/scene and layers were cut at 3 inches.


The stamped sentiment is from my new Build a Valentine stamp set, which can be used for so much more than just Valentines!  :)


Have a wonderful weekend!
