Card Design: Tuesday Alchemy Challenge #49

It is time for my third challenge as a DT member over at Tuesday Alchemy.  This week for Challenge 49 we want to see any type of project.  Yes that's right, it is time for everyone's favourite challenge theme of  Anything Goes

This week we have TWO fabulous prizes available from the following  generous sponsors. 

5 Digital Images
$10 Store Voucher


So please head on over to
and join in all the challenge fun!

Here is the front of my card...

 Here is the inside...
Here are the card details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

  • Digi-Image:  The image on the front of the card is the most absolutely adorable image that I got to play with from one of our sponsors, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps.  It was coloured using Copic markers.  Cats:  C1, C3, C5, C7 (fur); R20, R22, R24 (ears and foot pads); B00 (eyes).  BowR22, R24, R29.  Grounding around monsiour et madame meow-meow:  B00.
  • Sentiments:  The 'purr-cuddle-play' sentiment on the front of the card underneath the cats is from Pink Cat Studio. It was a freebie I got awhile back.  The site has been completely revamped and it looks like those freebies are no longer available.  The 'no one is purrfect' on the front and the inside sentiment are created by me.  Both are printed onto Recollection's Cardstock White Paper.
  • Paper:  I used a black paper for the card base purchased at Michael's--Recollection's CardstockThe red cross hatch paper is from the Recollection's Bright and Basic paper pad.  The black hearts on white paper is from the Recollection's All Girl paper pad.  The black paper used as a shadow is from the same pad mentioned above.
  • Embellishments:  The glittery hearts and heart brads on the front, and the felt hearts inside are from Dollarama.
  • One of the challenges I've entered requires using a die cut.  The black shadow circle in behind the image is a die cut using Cricut's George Basic Shapes cartridge. 
  • I used a sketch from Studio Cappucino for this card:

 Challenges I will be entering the card into: 
Some more challenges may be added to this list throughout the week or month.

I apologize if there are any formatting issues.  This is a scheduled post and we all know Blogger has a mind of it's own.  If it turns out that something looks wonky, I'll fix it as soon as I'm able to.

Thanks so much for stopping by and please leave some love if you have the time.  As I've now added to my comment section,
thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and to write me a little note. Whether you are a regular, here for the first time or popping over in your official capacity as a DT member, please know how much I appreciate the words that you leave behind. Your encouragement helps me to become a better designer.   I try my best to reply to your comments (when an email address is available) but that is getting more and more difficult as my plate fills up with new responsibilites, new roles, and new obligations.  If I don't get the opportunity to thank you personally, know that I don't take a single comment for granted. Thank you for your understanding.

Until next time,

Hi Lisa, Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my Doodle Pieces Blog. It is so nice to meet another Canadian Digital Stamp Artist. I also saw your adorable card on Make it Monday and Tuesday Alchemy and had to come check out the rest of your blog. I love how you have colored those cute cats, as well as the glittery hearts you used as accents. Very cool blog and I look forward to seeing more especially some of your nail art.
