Catherine Says Get Well Soon

Happy Saturday! Today's card features one of my favorite new images - Catherine the Vet from Anki's Sweethearts at SCACD. I love her little puppy with the bandaid. As soon as I saw her she went right in my cart - NO QUESTION about that one!!

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics, then went through and added some highlighting with the white gel pen. The colors I chose are Real Red, black, and Basic Grey. I cut her out with Labels 2 Nestabilities. Since I used the largest die to cut the image, I went back and cut another panel the same size from Basic Grey cardstock, cut it in half and adhered it to the image to show on the top and bottom to be my mat. I added it to the card base with dimensionals. I hand-doodled the faux stitching on the tag and image. The sentiment is from {Little Paper Shop}. Kaisercraft rhinestones in the corners {of course!} and she was finally ready to go. You know I love my rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by -- have a great day!
