Braveheart

This is my first card as guest DT member of Sugarnellie. I used the sugarnellie stamp braveheart which can be bought here from Funky Kits, isn't he so cute!

The sketch is from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge blog.
I spent ages trying to find a sentiment to go with the stamp, and eventually found 'Courage does not always roar- sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow' Author unknown. It think it goes perfectly with this little scaredy cat. I made it into word art in MS Publisher, then went over the roar in an orange glittery gel pen.



I decorated the inside with some cat footprints, patterned paper and an orange gem in the corner.

The papers are from Summertime Designs Boy Oh Boy kit, the image is coloured with whispers pens, flowers are prima, ribbon is from chatterbox, circles are cut with nesties and xcut shape cutter.
