Fitztown - Googly Eyes

The theme this week at Fitztown Challenge Blog is Googly Eyes. I chose the image Cutie 2 for my card and that image is available here.

My card blank is by Joanna Sheen and is an 8x8 square. The red card is from Papermill and the backing paper is from a freebie pad from Docrafts. After matting the backing paper on to the red card I added a black organza ribbon down the left side, topped with a narrow red organza ribbon and with a mustard coloured one alongside. The image was coloured with my Promarkers and I made her a tortoiseshell because I have a black tortie and a white tortie so needed to get them in on the act. After colouring her I cut with a Spellbinders die and then edged that with a Distress Ink in the Barn Door colour. I generated a sentiment on the computer and cut that with the smaller size Spellbinders die from the same set and again smudged the edge with the Distress Ink. I only had to add a black bow and pieces of Card Candi to the red ribbon and the mustard ribbon to finish off the design. This is a card that I enjoyed making and I know exactly who the recipient will be.
