A Card for Aisne

Good Morning Everyone, I suspect you are all getting ready to celebrate bringing in the New Year, we will probably watch TV and then listen to the town setting of fireworks, it goes on for quite a bit in this neck of the woods, anyway I want to wish you all a Very Happy New Year tomorrow in case I dont get to post another card till well into next week, I have several DT cards to schedule today so might not be able to make any more till then.
Anyway I was approached yesterday by a lovely lady Aisne Smith of "Card Making Downloads" and she asked if I would see how I got on with her digi stamps, she has a very successful company that sells papers and coloured images but shes anxious to make a break into digi stamps, and as we all know thats quite a competitive market, but I like her designs so I want to wish her good luck and I hope you do to and we shall have to keep a keen eye on them in the future.
I have used this gorgeous "Kitten Girl" not sure of her actual name as she is only in her provisional stage and not actually available yet, but I think its probably what shes supposed to be with those ears, feet and hands. Ive printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used the oval Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and the Beaded Oval for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lilac pearlescent card with one of three papers from the "Kay Miller" Digi Downloads, a very pretty pink, lilac in various shades, on top is a striped paper, and for my third is a very pretty patterned paper in similar colours but with hearts, dots and flowers on.
I then positioned my image towards the left, and with two other papers from the same digi set, I have used one of the Die-namics rolled flower dies to create three flowers, and stuck them to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out fern leaves.
I do hope that you will make a visit to Aisne's shop and see for yourself what beautiful and stunning things she has to offer, and also go and visit her blog she has some fabulous free downloads on there to also these images are available here on her blogspot .
