Hi everyone! I'm here today to share a card I made for a good friend of mine who recently lost her kitty. I adore this stamp set - she's just adorable to color with Copic Markers. I also used the paw print from the same stamp set to create a handstamped pattern in the background. Using a heart punch, I just cut a few different patterns from the Authentique paper pad to lay across.
