Use it Tuesday #48 Warm it Up with Freshly Made Sketch #70

The focus of the Use it Tuesday challenge blog is to use your stash and I certainly have accumulated a lot of "stash".  I combined a new stamp "Cozy Cat" (my absolutely favorite!) along with the new paper (cat's pillow) from "Chantilly" which will be available to order from Close To My Heart this Friday, Feb. 1.  The other 6 elements I've had in my stash for quite awhile (Burlap Ribbon, Chocolate CS, Sunset CS, Victorian Buttercup B&T paper (retired), Cranberry B&T paper (retired) and Dotty for You--also retired.  The greeting "You Make Me Smile" is from Hooray Bouquet.  The focus of the Use it Tuesday #48 challenge this week is to use warm colors such as yellow, orange and red.  I followed the Freshly Made Sketch #70--I love their clean lined sketches and play along with them as much as I can.  Some extra embellishments I used were Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel, Silver Glitz Glitter Gel and 3D FoamTape.

Here is the Freshly Made Sketch I followed (flipping the pattern to fit in with the direction the cat is facing.) :

I am also entering this card into Send a Smile for Kids Challenge Anything Goes.
