Bellarific Friday...on Saturday!!!

**Please scroll down for my Sweet Stop Sketch Card** Thanks!!

Hi everyone! Happy Bellarific Friday...on Saturday! (grin!!)

This week's Bellarific Challenge was an AWESOME sketch...my favorite kind of challenge!!

For my card, I used the darling kittycatabella from Stamping Bella for my card. This stamp was a must have for me...I am a TOTAL cat kind of girl! We lost our sweet Zack this past December but we still have three cats that share our home, Kharma, Elphaba & Gus Gus.

I stamped kittycatabella onto Bella's Bestest Cream paper and colored her with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiment, "they followed me home..." (how funny is that!!) on a curve once I cut kittycatabella out with Classic Oval Nestabilities. I lightly sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe to make the oval pop.

All the patterned papers on my card are from the Origins line by Basic Grey and I kept it super simple with just three black brads as an accent!!
