In the Garden

Hello friends.  It's finally warming up and the snow is melting.  I'm hoping we'll have some nicer weather for the next few days.  Anyway, I do have a card to share with you.

This cute kitty is by Penny Black and it's from their In The Garden set.  There are so many cute images in this set.  Penny Black always makes such adorable little animals.  I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added some Glamour Dust to the flower.  The border punch is the EK Success paw print punch ... isn't it cute?  I think it's perfect for animal cards.  I added some pearls and a bow and this card was finished ... very clean and simple.

Thank you for stopping by!
