Garden Cat

Hello my crafty friends!!

Today is my "debut" as a DT member at The Shabby Tea Room with my first project.
In the past (even though it's not necessary), 
I always tried to do my project a bit "shabby chic",
but this cute little garden cat from Bugaboo Stamps (isn't he just the cutest?)
"kind of" didn't fit the look I usually do....
So, I decided to make it a tiny bit shabby and 
a tiny bit playful with the colors and polka dots.
You can never go wrong with polka dots I don't think!

My cute little kitty was colored with Copic markers....
I think I used about 20 different ones, in fact I scooped them up and the image
and went and showed my hubby..."See all these alcohol markers...
I used them all on this one image!"
His answer was "Alcohol markers...don't they dry up?""...funny man!!

For my bit of "shabby look"
I added ruffled tulle trim from Websters Pages around my image...
have to say I LOVE that stuff!!!
A gem in the digital flower, some pearls, ribbons, wood birdie 
and such 
and my card was complete.
This card makes me happy with all it's pretty Spring colors !

I hope you will join us in 
The Shabby Tea Room this week for our challenge "anything goes"!!!

Dang, I love it! Bugaboo images are so darling and some of my favorite digis. I love how you used the bird cage with it. The tulle is awesome. Lots of shabby goodness, and, no, you can't go wrong with polka dots! It is amazing how many Copics it takes to color an image, isn't it? I do love how it turns out, though, and coloring is so much fun!
