Hello, Hola, Bonjour,...

Over at Outlawz Twisted Thursday we have a new challenge for you and this week it's a plain and simple ANYTHING GOES.

I used an image from our sponsor for January -  Stitchy Bear Designs. I colored it in shades of grey and teamed it up with a purple paper from Maja which I embossed using two embossing folders.
I added purple flowers and flower ribbon, grey lace and striped washi (I feel very proud each time I find a way to use these tapes). The sentiment panel was a freebie from TLC a while back. I stitched around the edges with purple thread.

This card is also for:
Inkspirational - Blast from the past (#67 – purple/grey/silver)
Show us your pussies - #2 Furrything Goes
City Crafter Challenge - #296 - For The Love of Pets

Pia, I just love this card. The sentiment goes with the stamp so well. I think your background is lovely. Why don't I ever think of using Washi tape like that? I will try to remember to do so in the future. The flowers and the sewing are such a nice touch as well!

Oh, your card so sweet in purple!! And great idea using two EF to give dimension and interest! Love grey and purple, I think this is a bit vintage, so feminine and elegant combo. I never thought this and love it! I must try!
Cute kitten and flowers and like so much the multilingual sentiment panel:D !!
Love also so much the stitched edges in dark purple thread!!
