I Love My Cat - Sneek Peek Pet Collection

Hello and good morning.. my card uses the wonderful sketch my friend Jaqueline created for the Friday Sketcher blog. Check it out.. we have so many different sample cards to see what is possible with this sketch. I just mounted my octagon on my 6x6 card base lol. To cut the perfect ankled corners i used my Scor-pal cutting mat and lined my cs on the 45 degree angle (click on link and you will see what i mean) and cut with an exacto knife. That was the easy part but boy the stitched "x" with hemp on my card took long. At one point i regretted that idea lol.

Stamps: Magnolia " Tilda from the Pet Collection" Cat in the inside can be found in a 2007 Collection
Sentiment: computer generated
Papers/CS: Bo Bunny "Pet", Making Memories "Chloes Closet" Stampin up (Kraft, Blue, Vanilla, Chocolate Chip)
Tools: Stampin up punch, Scor Pal self healing cutting mat
Embellishments: Mother of pearl fish embellishment and flower button received from Heidi over on Papirverden for Christmas :-) everything else is by Stampin up

This card is a cutie! I can't wait for the animal images to be released! I especially love the stitching you did and I appreciate you hard work on the hemp x's they really add to your card that little special something! Isn't stiching fun;-) How are your fingers? sore from pushing the needle through the cardstock I bet!
Its really a great card my friend
