Touch of Kindness Card

I bought this set because of the cat!  I'm such a cat lover. 

I was not all that thrilled with this card.  I felt it was in need of a bit more of something.  I am not sure of what but it needs something. 

I wanted to add words but the gals stamping said not to add a thing.  
I love using the embossing folder and the oval template to keep the center smooth so you can stamp in it.  You can either buy a thin wood frame "thing" that has the oval already cut out or you can make one. If you buy one of those then you just need one clear plate with your folder. If you make one you would need to use the oval die cut and cut a piece of card stock (the size of the folder) and cut out the oval.  I did this for 4 pieces of card stock. I glued them together and set a heavy book on top so it dried flat.  Once it is dry you can use it on top of the embossing folder and get that same smooth center effect.  

I did stamp the cat on the card stock and I stamped it on a piece of scrap card stock.  The one on the scrap piece was cut out by hand and set in place on top of the one on the embossed piece.  I did color it first!!  I also cut out the butterfly.  The bird is from the set but from the bird bath piece. 

In my attempt to add more to the card I put the ribbon on the corners. I felt it could use some color there!  The gals liked it but I had to leave the rest of it alone.  SO this is my card.  I am leaving the set out because later this week I'm going to play with it again. I have a fun layout I want to play with and this set will be perfect for it (I hope!!!).

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
