Kitty Valentine

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne posting today with another Valentine's card!  I love this sweet kitty and had to make her grey like my sweet, old grey kitty, Andreya.
I started with an A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch) card base in Real Red, a piece of patterned paper cut to 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and a heart die cut using the largest of the Stitched Hearts dies.
Next, I cut out the cat and small heart using the patterned paper and two shades of grey - Basic Grey and Smoky Slate.
I used Smoky Slate ink and a sponge dauber to add some depth to the edges.  I colored the ears pink and nose black using Copic markers.  Then I assembled the cat.
I put an  adhesive sheet on the back of the red cardstock and die cut the sentiment.
Finally, I assembled the card.  Since the sentiment die also cut out a little red bow, I thought that would be the perfect finishing touch for my sweet kitty.  You can see it in the final card.
Dies I used:

Thanks for stopping by today - have a wonderful weekend!

I want to just give that little kitty a hug myself! The bow is a perfect touch as well as the little stand out heart on the bigger heart sheś holding. Sweet! -Janet
