Share Joy Challenge #50


I am so glad you stopped by today! I have a fun card to bring you using this weeks Share Joy Challenge! I used the sketch portion, and the adorable If Cats Could Talk stamp, and die set.

I trimmed down a piece of Sugar Cube card stock to a standard size card, and flicked on black ink. After I allowed it to dry, I adhered the two larger sized Stitched Frame Stacklets with foam tape.

I took the cat from the set, and stamped it onto Kraft card stock, die cut it out, and added a bit of shading with a Copic Marker. I also stamped and cut out the mouse, and adhered that behind the cat image, mounting them both onto a die cut circle of Mint Julep. I adhered my white heat embossed sentiment vellum strip behind the circle, and adhered the piece to the card base.

I hope you have a chance to play along with us, and I look forward to seeing what you create! Guidelines to play are below, as well as the challenge graphic! Have a great day!
