I decided I would join CASology's challenge this week: their trigger word for the week is 'furry,' haha!  How cute is that?  It was definitely a challenge, though, because I was not sure what to work with.  Then I remembered I had a really sweet stamp of a cat lounging on a chair, so I went with that and came up with this:

And watch out!, I actually dusted off my Copics and used a few of them to liven the image a bit!  Honestly, it's a shame I don't use my Copics more often; this was a good way to get re-inspired!

For the card base, I used Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select white cardstock, then stamped the cat image (by Harmonie) with Tsukineko's Tuxedo Black.  I used Martha Stewart's 3-in-1 hydrangea punch for the flower, then an Impression Obsession leaves die for the leafy accent.  Copic markers used: C3, C5, E39, YR24, and YR27.  Also, the sentiment comes from the Mini Blooms stamp set by Papertrey Ink.

Hope you like the card...enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute card and great coloring. Use those copics.

  2. Vanessa, this is adorable! That feline looks rather comfy in his chair! :) Love that pearl centered bloom and the way you divided the card base with the green DP!
