Mystery Challenge Swap For February

Here we are with our second Mystery Challenge Swap.   A group of great girls on the SCS site are in our mystery swap.  We swap cards every other month.  One person sends out an image and can send out a little sumpin' sumpin' with the image too.  From there, we all create a card with those same items.  It is fun to see how different everyone's cards can be from the same basics.

This round our hostess was, Gael.  We were sent a great image from Artful Inkables titled Think Big.  I love that we had a cute little cat to go with!  The sentiment I chose to use is from Stampin' UP! Hearts and Posies, circa 2002.




I attempted to create a wall and floor scene, with the DP being similar to wallpaper and ran the brown cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz Wood embossing folder. 

I enjoyed our challenge this round.  I love to read and working with this cute image was perfect.  Thanks, for taking the time to check out our Mystery Challenge.

Your mystery card swap is a great idea, and this is a beautiful card. I love the image and the backing paper is fab. The sentiment goes so well with the theme. Cute cat too (I'm definitely a cat person). Thanks for playing along with our Embossing theme at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog. Hope to see you again next week with another great creation. Annette xx

I just love this stamp and this is one of the things I do, depending on what book I'm reading, sitting on the floor and my cat looking at me. I love it.
