Love Cats

This is my last post for today everyone. I promise not to bug you anymore with thoughts of crayons and potions. lol
I guess in looking at this card you can guess what song has been in my head all day...
"thank you for loving me" by Bon Jovi. Gotta love it. :-)
Aren't these love cats great?
They're by Penny Black and I've used distress inks for coloring them.
All the paper is from my stash. The top banner is simply a strip of paper hand cut/scalloped and paper pierced.
The frame on the image and sentiments is made using adhesive cork. I buy it by the big rolls in the posterboard area of a large craft store. It's cheaper than individual sheets. Much cheaper.
But they're not going to tell you that...
So here is a closeup of the cats..
And the ribbon detail.. Ive used a heart shaped brad for the thank you note. I never do hearts but it's kinda cute.


And the "loving you" sentiment. I printed these on the computer. yay! My ink arrived last night! Back in business!

This card qualifies for the following challenges:
PB Sat sketch
All Sorts Heart
Hidden Treasure Orange/ turquoise
OCC Lets get corky
Papertake Weekly In the Garden


Thanks for looking everybody!
