Creatively Cute Challenge #1, Pink Elephant Challenge #3: Fluffy Little Gift

Double the challenge, double the fun, with double mint, double mint, double mint gum! (oh, "almost" the song...huh?) ANYWAY, my Creatively Cute Blogging Group has started to do Challenges (see here for all the deets) and this weeks challenge is to create a card that is about YOU... so I chose this Gift From Kitty stamp set (I've been looking for a good excuse to use it) and the REASON I chose this kitty is his funny little sentiment...A Fluffy Little Gift from Kitty... which explains me...a little bit sassy, and a little bit sweet (and I LOVE making and gifting homemade apparently does this kitteh...)
Now onto the card, I did a different type of coloring job...I was unhappy with my High Hopes entry (my coloring job), so I decided to try something different with today's post. This kitty was stamped on watercolor paper, I then used water based pens (Tombow and Martha Stewart brands) and wet a paintbrush and did a little watercoloring...I think I like the results...and I think I could get much better...LOL
I added some fiber instead of ribbon to my card to bring some attention to Kitty's "gift"...I also knotted the fiber and put it in the middle of my prima flower. This card was made with this weeks Pink Elephants Challenge #3 sketch (see below card photos for actual sketch). Recipe below...thanks for looking!
