Cat in the Hat

Howdy!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I made this card today for SCS's Sketch challenge found HERE. I don't know what I was thinking by adding all the hardware, but what's done is done!!

This adorable *cat in the hat* image Cat Nap by Artful Stamper, was colored with copics, and the hat is flocked.

The little snowman in the picture is from the set Little Somethings (SU - 1998 - retired). For the corners, I cut out a section of the SnowDots embossing folder with a nestability square and ink distressed it with Walnut Stain (Ranger Distress Ink).

The flakes are Felt (SU) and were coated with Dazzling Diamonds (SU) after dipping them in my Glue Essentials pad. The bottom panel is pierced with an ornare template, and the subtle blue flakes on the white panels are Tinsel Town (Pink Paislee). The Merry Christmas sentiment is by Northwoods.

Finally, I added some brads and some Icons Rhinestone stickers.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome week!
Happy Stamping!

Holy COW! (hey how come I can't increase the font size here?) I need font 72. I adore all the panels and the coordinated variety. The ornare tool work is just yummy but sooooo much work. Your fingers must have been numb by the time you finished. This card is exquisite.
