I made this thinking of you card for my sister. She loves cats and I thought this image would be perfect for her.
My sister isn't in a good living situation right now and there's really no way that I am able to help her. I think of her often and I hope something will work out for her someday and until then all I can do is to let her know that I care and that I'm thinking about her.
My image was colored using my SU markers and I have to say that this image was a challenge for me. It really took some shading to help cover up the streak marks that you get from the SU markers. Sometimes I'll use my white gel pen for dots to help cover up the streakiness.
I really like the results I got from my decorative scoring and paper piercing dots combination that I have just below my image. First I scored the four score lines and then using my SU mat pack I aligned up the two paper pierced rows.
I decided to use a button with ribbon tied in the center and two certainly celery ribbon tabs in the upper right corner for my embellishments. Buttons aren't something that I usually use, but I like it on this card.
I'm posting early today because I have a ton of house work, so I'd better get busy! Have a great day!
