A Hug & A Squeeze From Me

Hello! I have another card made with another Lili of the Valley stamp! Am I hooked or what? This stamp is called "Kitten Cuddles". I just love that sweet kitty face! Lots of die cuts (clouds, grass, oval opening) made this card come together fast. The slowest part of making this card was the fussy cutting of the girl in the swing...I had to leave 2 small white areas uncut, as I didn't want to make the image too vulnerable to tearing. Below is a close-up photo of the popped up clouds behind the popped up girl in the swing.

Below, are the Copic Sketch Markers used in this image.
I also used a few Prismacolor Colored Pencils
to highlight and deepen the overall image.

Below, is a photo of the card interior
with coordinating papers, layout & design.
