Restful Contentment

     This image is the story of my life - my entire life!   From early childhood days, I've had fur-babies on my bed, often dogs, more often cats, sleeping with me and purring with contentment.  These sleeping beauties are for the Progressive Challenge at Sasayaki Glitter this month.  Obviously, it's a perfect scene for me.  :-D


     I colored with chalks and ProMarkers, then cut the image with a Spellbinders' rectangle die.  I cut the frame with a die from Bo Bunny, using a scrap of pink paper.   I found a scrap of ombre paper i the box of leftover paper bits, matted it with pink CS, and ran it as a vertical strip behind the image.

     I printed the sentiment with a computer font, hand cut it, and matted it with more pink CS.  I punched the white flowers for a scrap of mulberry paper, added a touch of glitter to them, and then found the pink flower in my stash.  It was already glittery.  The final touch was the bowtie bow.
