Newton's Nook Designs May Release - A Cozy Day In

Thursday, May 19, 2016

Hello lovelies!
Welcome to the final day of the Newton's Nook Designs May Release!
Are you ready for some more cuteness!?

If this image doesn't melt your heart, I don't know what else to offer you...*LOL*
Here is my sweet and cozy card ;-)

Again, if you love cats and books, how could you resist this sweet image!?
That is totally me before I had the kids...just curling up with my kitties ;-)

I wanted it to be soft so I heat embossed with Smoky Slate instead of black ink. 
I'll be honest, it was so much fun coloring but picking colors was a bit challenging because think about it, you pick colors for your furniture then accessorize with more colors. And you do the same thing with your outfit, right? You don't usually try to coordinate your furniture and outfit, plus your kitties! LOL My first try was a disaster! I had too many colors and they didn't really coordinate nicely...

This lovely sentiment was heat embossed with Smoky Slate on So Saffron, both colors were pulled from the image. I also added a snippet of Blackberry Bliss ribbon, which color was also used on the image. Repeating the same colors really help pull the whole card come together. 

I added some Smoky Slate washi tape on my So Saffron base. Again, repeat of the same color pallet. Since my base doesn't show through the tape much, I added some yellow sequins along with some white ones. A little sparkle always helps complete a card ;-)
