SAF 2015 thread nest and a CASE

This card is a CASE of Kim Makortoff's card as seen in this post on the STAMPlorations blog.
I was inpired by the stamped panel and the soft colours. Because I wanted to also make this card work for the SAF 2015 challenge, I browsed my PTI stamps and found this cute Cat's meow stamp set and coordinating dies that I had never used until now, and I knew this was going to work just perfecly. Love it when that happens.

and here is Kim's card:

Before adhering my cat to the card using foam tape, I wrapped thin embroidery thread around my fingers and placed in where I wanted. Because the thread was wrapped around a card instead of a spool, my thread nest is not as tidy as Lauren Bassen's, but I think it fits in nicely with the cat theme lol.

Inks used: Soft granite & Charcoal by Hero Arts, Autumn rose by Papertrey Ink

  1. What a cut kitty Marriane and that DP with is perfect with a cat image as is the sentiment.

    We have just booed next years holiday (early I know but it's the only way to get a good choice of cabin) and we are going to Crete one day, along with a few other Greek islands.
