Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Girly

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for today's SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek! *** 

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

For my take on the challenge, I focused on the sweet kitten hat.  The cat from the Clear and Simple Stamps Taglines:  Critters set was the perfect image for my design!  I stamped the cat on white cardstock and colored it a bit with markers, then cut it out and used foam tape to adhere it to a pair of layered circles.  The circles were adhered to the top of a pink dotted panel set on a pale gray cardstock panel.  I curved the "for a purr-fect friend" sentiment on my clear block to match the shape of the round panel, then stamped the sentiment along the circle's edge in black ink.  To go with our girly theme, I tucked a strip of white lace trim underneath the bottom edge of the dotted strip.  Since this card is going to a hospital card drive for young children, I didn't add any other embellishments, even though I wanted to add a button or brads, or enamel dots . . .
