Love Cats in Paris

Today's card is made without the use of stamps - I think it's been quite some time since I last made such a card. And I made it a shaker card, I love making these. I used a mix of purple sequins in combination with white stars, it's supposed to look like a starry night sky.
I added a die cut stitched frame, attached a silver die cut Eiffel Tower (Spellbinders) and a cat couple (Marianne) on top. The white papers have a striped structure, but it doesn't show up well in the photo. The purple DP is a leftover piece from my scrap pile - I'm trying really hard to use scraps rather than cutting up unused papers at the moment. I'm quite embarrased to admit I now have 2 XL sized boxes full of scraps, but it's how it is when you don't let much go to waste, lol.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Purple + option love
2) City Crafter Challenge - #263 - Sequins
3) Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes or Twist of Die Cuts
4) Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
5) Crafty Creations - #290 Creatures

This card is just adorable, Pia!!! Your shaker-starry night sky looks so well in the stiched frame! And I can see the white texture of the background and the cats, a very elegant touch.
I love cats (I have six, I live in country!)and this couple is very romantic in front of the Eiffel tower :)

This is so very fun and cute. I love your Parisian kitties!

I am like you and have such a large scrap pile, I am always trying to use them up. I scrapbook too and that creates lots of scraps as well. The patterns are often too large for cards though!
