Midnight Madness #6

This is the second installment in the Valentine's series...but as I like to multi-task this one is also doubling up for Paula's 6th Midnight Madness challenge. ETA: I'm also going to enter this one into the Caardvarks challenge for the month....at the urging of the lovely Miss June....hope that's ok 'Varks??????So, Paula said that we could use this cutie pie kitty as inspiration for a mixed pattern or quilt style card and that gave me a great idea:
What do you think? This one is going to my gorgeous niece Alexandra....hopefully she won't try to eat this one!!!!

I've used Pretty in Pink for the card base, Rose Red for the next layer and the punched hearts & Regal Rose for the plain squares. The patterned squares (punched with the 1 1/4" square) are from the Basic Grey *Bittersweet* 6x6 pad....my new love! These papers are just gorgeous!!!!! The sentiment is from *Short & Sweet* and stamped in Rose Red on some more of the Bittersweet paper, then punched out with the Designer Label punch and popped into a Styled Silver Hodgepodge frame. The ribbon is Rose Red double stitched from the Summer mini. The silver heart brads came from my stash and I have no idea who makes them!!!

Ok, that's it for today...see you tomorrow with another Valentine :)

So glad you were inspired, it's a gorgeous card! I might see if I can make another one tonight but I'd really like to pop out to a craft shopand buy some cute floral paper...hmm will see how I go.

Hi Kristie, glad you are back, we missed you, Love this card, not sure about the new blog background though, I think it overwhelmes your beautiful cards, but then I may just need new glasses!

This is my most favorite Kristie card to date. You gotta enter this over at the 'Varks! It is breathtaking!
