Swirly Curly Kitty

For the Simply Betty Fan Page challenge this month Betty gave us fans this awesome digi of her sister, Elaine, to play with.

When I took a photo of my card the kitty cat looked almost white and the rest is all a bit off colour so here’s a close-up of the detail of the front.
I decided to use her on a twisted easel card and took inspiration from a simply gorgeous card by Jenny at Jennifer D’s, go and check it out and the rest of her wonderful creations.

The challenge required ribbons and swirls so I loaded up on both with paper that has swirls on it, swirly die cuts and crystal flourishes and loads of beautiful ribbon I got at my LSS, The Crafter’s Haven.  I’m also trying my hand at multiple challenges, to make life more interesting, so I went with the colour purple for my card to match the theme at Crafty Catz for their challenge 180 – the colour purple, used several die cuts (not just the swirly) for the Stampin’ for the Weekend die cuts and/or punches challenge, added a couple of gorgeous blingy buttons for the Digi Haven use a button challenge and finally made this into a special birthday card (but shhh, I can’t say for who) for the Fairytale challenge #66 – a very special occasion.
