Hello everybody, Nicky here with you today to share a card made with products from My Favorite Things with a Valentine's Day theme.

I have used the super adorable I Knead You stamp set.  I selected this snoozing cat.  I stamped, die cut and watercolor painted the cat and the little perch it is on.   I then took the card panel and die cut it using the Stitched Triple Peek-a-boo Die   I love this die and I have so many plans for it in the future, I think it is a really good one to add to your die stash!  I saw the circles it creates and decided they could be dream bubbles.  My cat is dreaming of fish, mice and balls of yarn - all the things that she loves.  I repeat stamped and delicately watercolor painted all of these onto the 3 die cut circles.

I popped the stitched panel up with dimensional foam tape and recessed the dream bubbles and then applied my cat on her perch also with the foam tape.   The little bubbles drifting up from her were hand drawn and then I stamped and applied the sentiment.  The final touches were some sequin accents and then I highlighted a couple of areas on the cat using the Uni-Ball Signo White Pen.

There you have it, a very sweet slightly non-traditional Valentine's Day card.  I hope you are feeling inspired to create your own and remember to swing by Butterfly Reflections Ink to find all your card and scrapbooking needs from the ever growing selection of lovely supplies.  Please come and follow me on Instagram #nickynoocards and Pinterest and my Facebook Page for all of my projects past, present and future.  Have yourself a wonderful day and I'll see you this time next week with another card.
