hello kitty

One of my nieces is a Hello Kitty fan, and her birthday's next week! Isn't the DP pretty? It very nicely picks up the green, pink, and orange from the Hello Kitty image's sleeve and bow, and is from a 6x6" BasicGrey green at heart paper pad that I got at last week's Mega Meet. I got this and kioshi, and a pack of Bazzill card stock that's intended to match the green at heart DP. And the touch of purple is just 'cuz it's my favorite color! I love that the kind folkes at embellish-it hand pick card stock to match the DP pads, and sell 'em in packages. The black, kraft, orange, and pink are colors from this week's Curtain Call 30 Color Challenge and included in my image and DP ... but there ARE others I also used. Hmmnn ... is it too colorful to post there? Time'll tell!

I'm now caught up on my cards for friends and family thru May, something that doesn't happen very often in this household. I have a tendency to put off 'til the last minute and then be scrambling to make cards! And next it's on to June events ... to be ready in advance for a birthday and anniversary (that I get to ink up a new-to-me stamp set I recently purchased)!

I used a couple punches to make a faux button to attach at the left side of today's card. It's just 4 layers of card stock from a circle punch that I then used a McGill hand punch to insert the double holes thru. I adhered the 4 layers together and it's about the same height as the smaller pop dots that I used to raise the Hello Kitty image from the base of the card. This is meant to be mail-able so I'm watching the bumps purposely.

stamps: Inkadinkado's Chelsea Sentiments, Picket Fence; paper: BasicGrey's green at heart DP, recycled white card stock from work; ink: Ranger's Black Soot distress ink; tools: McGill hand punch, unknown circle punch
