Thankful For You

I'm back!!!
It was soooooo nice to get back into my craft room and let the creative juices flow!  So. Much. Fun!
I just love the way my card turned out today.  It's so adorable!
This sweet image is Jules from Saturated Canary who was a freebie Monday and Tuesday!  Isn't she darling??  I LOVE that she has a cute little kitty in her arms.  It is no secret.  I love kitties!  Can't get enough of them!  I'd take every one of them home with me if I could...but that isn't feasible for me...so I have to stick with my 3 :)

It seems when I start planning cards, and decide to add flowers, I always get the idea that I'm going to load them on and have this huge spread...but in the end it always seems to be just 1.  Not sure why that happens :)  I cut this flower out with my cricut with 2 staggered layers that I embossed with the Swiss Dots folder.  I love the texture and uniqueness it gives the flower.  Then I cut out a spiral rose, added glitter (which ended up all over me :) ) and quilled it up for the center.  I punched out 3 different types of foliage in 3 different shades of green and layered them all together.
The sentiment is from Desert Diva, printed, cut into a tag shape and then inked around the edge in pink.  I've inked all the edges of the papers with either pink or green.
I love how the 3 patterned papers coordinate so well together!

For my image, I colored her in carefully with my colored pencils.  I didn't add anything extra to the image...shock!  I did think of adding glitter, but she's just so adorable on her own that I didn't think she needed it :)
 The finishing touches were a swirl and corner rounds cut with my cricut, and pink and clear gems in 3 different sizes added to the swirl, corner rounds, and upper right corner to help tie that all in together.

What do you think?  I'm so glad I have this image!  She just makes me smile every time I look at her!  And to help fuel my Saturated Canary addiction, I picked up another 10 images during her sale this past weekend!  Oh boy...!
