Sunday Sketch & Stamp, Papertake Weekly, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and Paperplay Challenges.

Another lovely day here in Devon but I have still managed to make another card.

As always I shall start with the sketch I used which is from Sunday Sketch & Stamp and is shown below.
I then thought about a theme and I liked the sound of "All Creatures Great & Small" from
Paperplay Challenges. I found some Clear Magic stamps called "Lazy Days" which I bought from Handy Hippo. One of the cats was running around with bees and a butterfly which also made me think of the challenge at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, "Cute as a Bug". I also used a backing paper with bees and ladybirds on from the "Triple Treasures" CD Rom from Create & Craft.

Whilst I was putting the card together I realised it was a rather Summery picture so I will also enter the Papertake Weekly Challenge of "Four Seasons" - use a colour scheme or things that remind you of a season.

I coloured my cat in with Caran D'Ache water pencils and added some glitter to the bees wings and the clouds. I then mounted him on yellow glitter card. The ribbons at the bottom are some of Anita's Sticky ribbons. The sentiment is from the same Clear Magic set as the cat, stamped on some of the background paper. There is a yellow button in the top right from my stash (can't remember where from) and the flower is from Just Pots Funky Flowers which I one recently in a Blog Candy from Buttons for Brains - by the way she has just won a challenge and got a blog makeover as a prize!!
Hope you like my card and look forward to reading your comments - they really help you know.
