Kittens at Play

Today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches 575:
I couldn't resist playing along with the sketch using the Purr-fect Picnic Cats from Whimsy Stamps (digital). I just finished water-coloring this image this week and thought it would fit the sketch design "purr-fectly"!
How did I make this card?
1) Resize the image in a Word.doc and print through my laser printer on Ranger Ink Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper on the rough side.
3) The sentiment is from It's Party Time from Spellbinders white heat embossed on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Card Stock.
4) The rest was created with items in my stash. I very seldom used patterned paper, but I thought in this case it would work. The white cover plate in the background is from Honey Bee - Honey Cuts - Buffalo Plaid Cover Plate (retired).
I made a second card with the same "ingredients" but not using the sketch.
Thanks for joining me today and thank you to Freshly Made Sketches for their inspiration! I will also be submitting to favorite, NBUS, for keeping using up by "Stuff"!
