Cupcake Craft Challenges are among my favorites because they are so popular. I love peeking at the other entrant's submissions. The talent and ideas of some of these crafters are amazing.
The theme in this week's challenge is Cats and Dogs. I have stamps for dogs, frogs, hedgehogs, butterflies...but no cats. When I come across free digi images on the internet, I save them for future use and I just happened to have saved a cute kitty image which I colored with my Copic markers. I used a 4-sided background stamp (Stampendous) that I got on sale that I inked up with light green ink (Momento "Oh Baby" Dew Drop) and stamped some white cardstock. I cut out a circle big enough to accommodate the kitty image which I glued with pot dots to the inside of the card. To finish it off, I founded the bottom corners, applied a brown satin ribbon, light green gross grain ribbon and the sentiment, Thinking of You.
