Home Alone today....

Afternoon Ladies....
Today has been my first day Home Alone for just over a week and I have been able to work undisturbed making up some card orders...(I did do some housework as well)
This card is a special order from my cousin for her step-sister.
The cute cat with flowers image is a stamp from Wild Rose Studio, coloured with PMs and shaded with a grey pencil. The papers are from the WRS Spring CD and co-ordinate so well with the stamps. They are just so beautiful and come in all the lovely pastel shades, Pink, Lemon, Blue, Green and in Ginghams, Florals and Stripes.

The flowers are from a mixed bag that I bought in The Glitter Pot. Just layered up with a button and a brad in the centre. The lovely green ribbon Ric-Rac was given to me by a friend last week. Thanks ,Fiona!

I distressed the edges and then stitched around them.

Finishing touch was this net and wire butterfly.
I am entering this card into the following Challenges:
1.Sophisticat...Ribbon and Button
2.Flutter By Wednesday...Fairy or Butterfly

CANDY ALERT!!!! you fancy some Die Cut candy?
