Here kitty, kitty, kitty...

This is the last of the boxes I did for three young ladies.  This one likes jungle cat; and not wanting to create a box that was too serious, I searched for cute creatures.  I found this cutie at The Stitchy Bear Stamps Store. He worked out perfectly, and she really did like him.  I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils and used Gamsol.  Then I used Clear Gloss Accents on his eyes.  The flourish was made with pearls that I colored with my Promarkers.  This butterfly and the flowers are some pre-packaged items I purchased at one of the local Craft shops.  The plaid paper is punched along the bottom edge with a MS punch.  The other border is a zig zag die from   the Cheery Lynn Shop that has holes punched in it to be stitched, if so desired.
The green cardstock is embossed with a Sizzix folder; the buttons, lace and twine are from my stash.  I used a light blue to distress around the tiger, and a light purple was used on the flower border.

I'm entering this box in the following challenges:

Shelly's Images - anything
Craft Us Crazy -  favorite embellishment - lace
Paper Romance Challenges - anything but a card
Prairie Fairy Fridays - more than 1 fold
I Did It - anything
 DDH -   anything but a card
OLLCB - fancy folds
HLSC - box
Woodware - anything
Craft Your Passion - something off the edge
Southern Girls Challenge - lace & pearls

I hope that you've enjoyed looking at my post.  Don't forget to sign up for my candy, last time I checked I was only three (3) away from drawing the winners.  Look at top of blog.
