Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #55

 Good morning!  How about a challenge today?  Well, it's time for another Kaboodle Doodles Challenge, and for challenge #55, we are to break tradition.  We all tend to stay inside our comfort zones when we create, but  this time, we're going to step outside of that comfort zone just a bit, and try a different, or nontraditional fold.  There are a lot of great choices out there, and for my card, I chose to do a flap fold.  
I used this sweet Napping Kitty image from Wink Wink Ink for this card.  I printed the image digitally and colored it with my Copics.  The flap fold card technique can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.  I started with Kraft card stock for the base of my card, and added this great textured paper from DCWV's The Green Stack.  The edge of the flap on this card was punched with an EK Success large scalloped border punch, and I popped the kitty up on a make shift shelf across the front of the card.  I did a bit of hand stitching around the edges of the flap, and finished the card off with some pretty coral colored pearls, and a piece of taffeta ribbon.  This is the "purrrrfect" size card to hold a gift card, and I plan to use it for just that. 

Wink Wink Ink is the gracious sponsor of Challenge #55, and they provided the Kaboodle Doodles design team with some fantastic images to work with.  Please take a minute to drop by the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog to check out all the inspirational samples that our talented design team has created for you.  Be sure to leave them a little love, too!!  :)  We'd sure love to have you play along with our challenge if at all possible.  You could win the fabulous prize of a $15.00 gift voucher to the Wink Wink Ink store just for playing along!!  I don't know about you, but free images is a pretty good incentive for me to play along!!  Hope to see you there!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you're having a terrific start to your week.  Have a great day and happy stamping.
