Hi all, before I talk about my card I really want to thank everyone for their comments on my previous post it was so emotional to have so many friends congratulating me on my win, you are so kind and thoughtful, thank you.

I have a card to share with you today and enter into some challenges.  
I found a set of Gorjuss stamps that I have never used before and chose this one as it is the month of 'Love' and this set is called Purrfect Love
I stamped the image 4 times so I could paper piece her dress, hat, cat, heart, socks and boots, I also stamped a cat on it's own as it was a separate stamp, I also used the small hearts, tag, sentiment and star stamps that are in the set, the papers are actually from the Santoro Gorjuss range that I ordered from Create and Craft a little while back.
I added a black punched scalloped border, stamped flowers, gold pearl drops and beads in a bottle for the flower centres, the main white frame is from a set of Tonic dies I distressed the edges with TH ink.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Many thanks for popping by I will see you soon

Lorraine - what a beautiful card you have created! The color palette, paper piecing and elements you used together are a delightful combination. Your attention to detail with the fussy cutting & hand made flowers adds so much interest to this piece - nicely done indeed! Thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
