OSAAT #168 Use a Digi

Thank you all for continuing to visit me even though my posts are few and far between. I had a lovely two weeks staying with my son and daughter in law in Kent. I had my first house viewers earlier this week but, unfortunately, they have not put an offer in for my house. Keep your fingers crossed for more viewers please.

This week's theme over at One Stitch at a Time is 'Use a Digi'. I chose Two Kittens by Barb over at the Stitchybear Digi Outlet. I used the image of the kitten stretching and there's another of the kitten sitting.

Please check the challenge blog for details of prizes.

My card blank is a large square by Joanna Sheen. I coloured the kitten with my Promarkers and then cut it, on an angle, with one of my new X Cut large dies. The black card is by Papermill and the grey patterned paper is by Payper Box. I added a black organza ribbon, from Joanna Sheen, across the bottom and then added some bling to the centre of the ribbon. The bling was from our very good friend Nataliya. All I had to do then was add some Card Candi to the top right and bottom left. After I'd 'finished' it I thought it needed something else so I made a little Happy Birthday sentiment in a bright red font and cut it with one of the tiny dies that I bought a few weeks ago from Joanna Sheen - cheap sets but I have no idea who makes them.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Scrap it Girl Challenge - Use your dies

  8. Like the stretching Cat digi with the monochrome colors. The die you used for cutting out the digi works perfectly with the cat's stretch. There's a challenge at Glitter N Sparkle Ch37 Must have 3 of something and you have 3+ of the black embellishments. Please let them know I sent you.
