Hello Kitty

   I was delighted at being asked to be this weeks Guest Designer on the Love to Create Challenge blog where the theme is Friendship.
   I matted and layered designer paper from the English Paper Company onto black mirri card and white card. A strip of grey pearlescent sentiment paper from Cupcake Crafting was matted onto black mirri card and attached to the bottom of the card.
   I coloured the 'Hello Kitty' digi stamp from Stitchy Bear using Promarkers and shaded the background using distress ink. This was matted onto black card which had been cut out using a Spellbinders floral oval die and sprayed with pink iridescent glitter from Crafter's Companion. This was attached to the card using foam pads.
   Finally the verse was matted onto black mirri card and attached to the card along with pink bows made from narrow satin ribbon. 

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Open Minded Crafting -use some ribbon
   Crafting When We Can - die cut
   Pink Gem - favourite colour combo (pink and grey/black)
   Glitter n Sparkle - female cards
   Papertake Weekly - anything goes
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Digi Designs - use those markers
   Dream Valley - anything goes
   One Stitch at a Time - use a digi
