Two Cat Cards

Hi Everyone & welcome to another couple of cards from me. I know I don't normally post 2 together but I thought this time it would be easier. They are both made from a sheet of digistamps that are available over at Craft U Print.
The 1st card is using the image Kitten in Basket. Not quite sure where the basket comes into it but never mind.

I coloured the image with Promarkers & layered onto pink, green & pink gingham papers. I had a pale pink ribbon that I coloured using a Rose Pink Promarker & tied into a bow. I added the roses in the corner & coloured a diecut sentiment with a Pale Green Copic. Below is the inside of the card.I am entering this card into the following challenges.......

Right onto the 2nd card.........

I made a 6x6 card & then sliced one corner off. I added a piece of acetate to the inside of the card.I covered the remaining corner with spotty paper. The oval was cut out using my Nellie & I added gems to every other scallop. I coloured the image with Promarkers. I then added 3 button flowers.In the inside left of the card I used the piece of card that I cut from the front of the card to sandwich the acetate & again covered with the spotty paper. I added another oval & printed a birthday verse on my computer.

On the inside right of the card I added another oval, some flower paper & a sentiment.

Tomorrow I will be back to a normal short post & this week's Incy Wincy creation xx Clare x
