Dina Challenge 1 - Tend the Little Things

So, January 1st was Dina Kowal's (better known as Mama Dini) birthday and she decided to celebrate...big time!! She is hosting some awesome challenges on her blog and I intend to play along to help her celebrate her special day.
Her first challenge was to make a card using the scraps that were out on your desk at the moment. Well, when I looked at my desk, I had this beautiful green paper from Basic Grey sitting there, some light pink cardstock and a spool of black organdy ribbon. I decided to do somthing 'cute' because I think the pink and green look 'cute' together.
I stamped this little kitten on a piece of watercolor paper and then colored him in with my watercolor pencil crayons. I doubt that there are actually pink butterflies...but how could I resist. Then I added the pink cardstock behind the focal image and scalloped the edge. I adheared this to the green designer paper, added the ribbon, and finally, this cute little sentiment that I got from a special set (I'll share more at a later date).
Supplies: Stamps-Do You See What I See (smARTworks); Paper-Whisper White, Pink Pirouette(Stampin' Up!); green designer paper (Basic Grey), watercolor paper; Ink-Basic Black (Stampin' Up!), Jet Black (StazOn); Other-water pencilcrayons (Stampin' Up!), scallop scissors (Provo Craft), organdy black ribbon, watercolor brush.
That was a lot of fun!! head on over to Dina's blog to check out everything she has going on!!
