…will gaze upon the mere bookworms…

I’m sharing a card today made for a friend with Lil’ Bookworm Fairy by Ching-Chou Kuik.

My card follows the current sketch at Cheerful Sketches with lots of lovely layers that I have added to by double matting each of my designer papers and my image.  I swapped out the long rectangular element for some ribbon and lace and did my layout in a lovely palette of pinks, greens and yellows.

Over at the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog the current theme is cats or dogs and the sweet kitty on the delightful Ching-Chou Kuik image I’ve chosen means I will also link my card up there.  I tried to colour the kitty to match the new kitten that has recently joined my friend’s family, a birthday present for her youngest daughter.

Speaking of cats, the current challenge at Crafty Catz is for female projects.  With the pretty lady and elements on this card it could only be for a female so I’m also entering my card in their challenge.
