Purrrfectly Sweet Couple

Hello.  Well, so much for trying to post more often. LOL.  I just can’t stay motivated, or know what I want to do anymore. Sad smile  This is a card for a couple’s anniversary tomorrow.  She really loves cats, so I thought this would be appreciated.  The image is by Robyn's Fetish, called Pussy Cat Love.

I decorated the inside of this style card after I saw Sandy Hulsart of Cheery Lynn Designs do it.  She’s a fantastic designer.  All of my Dies are by Cheery Lynn Designs. The two largest purple roses are made using the Small Rose die, the large white flower, using “Sweet William”.  I’ve also used the Tropical Flourish,Grass Border, the Kiwi Oval Frame and the Small French  Lattice frame, that I cut down and used on both sides of the card. The paper is called Jelly Bean by Basic Grey

The other items are silk flower buds with buttons in their center and MS butterfly and punched flowers around the sentiment on the inside.  Oh, and I did use two colors of Tim Holtz distressing inks.

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

You are so talented and warm person, Debra, and I'm sure the couple will love this and surely made them laugh :)

Hi Debbie!
This came out just so adorable!
I'm sorry I haven't been by, We've been on vacation and now that I'm back I want to check out some blogs but stupid blogger still refuses to let me see my reading list in dashboard which is such a pain!
Anyway, sorry youre having such a time being motivated, I feel similarly; don't know, maybe its just that time of year, theres so much else to so!
