Card Patterns 16

The sun is gone and the rain has returned; hopefully only for a short time. I thoroughly enjoyed my pool and the sun this weekend. I had to go to work today which felt strange since I hadn't worked in over a week...oh, well vacation is over.
I made this card using Card Patterns sketch #16 and my May card kit from Treasured Scrapbooking. It is also for my Paper Therapy group who was challenged to use stitching. I stitched. By hand. Some day I'll learn how to use my sewing machine.
The "laugh" rub on didn't go on quite right.

I also have another picture of a rose for you.

And in fairness to my other kitty Duncan, since I posted a picture of Celia last time, here is a picture of him hiding under the lounge chair. The camera must have startled hime because his ears are back and it makes him look kinda goofy. So cute!

Michelle, what a pretty card!! Love that big butterfly. And that rose is wonderful. I'm still waiting for mine to start blooming.

Thanks for playing along on CP with us!

Beautiful card! Love the hand stitching and popped up butterfly! I love those sucker roses....we have a ton of them (unfortunately, I'm horrible about deadheading!). You have two very cute kitties! :>
