Designer Spotlight at Kitty Bee Designs

Hello! Today is my spotlight day at Kitty Bee Designs, and here is my project today-




This is so out-of-the-box for me! This card is all about the shapes. The background paper (old Creative Memories) dictated the whole color scheme. I used My Favorite Things inside & out stitched ovals and circles for the shapes and a Little B die sentiment, all of them cut out of my scrap bin papers. That image is Cupcake Suprise, here at the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy Store, colored with Copics

I hope you like it!
