Oh So Sweet

Here is a card that I made today. This one uses a digital stamp from Motivet called Cat with Flower. The sketch that I used is this week's challenge at Motivet. What a fun sketch to work with. This is the first time I used a charm on a card, so I wasn't sure what to use to attach it with. So I had to do a little experimenting and finally decided to use some pink thread from my sewing cabinet. The thread is more a satiny kind of thread than normal thread. I wanted to add a little more to the flowers so I ended up taking a little cotton candy Stickles and added it to the edge of my pink flower. My stitching is faux stitching and I used a Marvy Leplume II Rose Pink marker to create my "stitching".

I just love how this card turned out and I am so excited to be entering it into the following 9 challenges:
