A round dozen!!!

Hello my blogging buddies
I hope this Sunday finds you all well and fighting fit.
I have been working on a couple of things today - one I can't tell you about until tomorrow! :) I am sooooo excited!!
And the other one is the card below:

For this card I used a Pollycraft image called Cherry Kisses Kitty.
I stamped and heat embossed a butterfly using a Clarity Stamp and once embossed with clear embossing powder I used Pee Wee glitters, coincidentally called "Butterfly" which I bought from Create and Craft ages ago and have ashamedly neglected them, and then added the butterfly using Silicone to raise it off the paper a little. 

The image was printed three times and I have decoupaged both Cherry Kisses and her Kitty.  I have used small pieces of wire for Kitty's whiskers again for a 3 dimensional effect. 

I have cut a pink tag from a book of Hot Off The Press papers called Garnet and used an odd piece of burgundy ribbon from my stash.  The cream/burgundy and green/burgundy papers are both from a 6 x 6 pack of Laura Ashley flock effect papers (a recent purchase from Hobbycraft) and the small flowers at the bottom are punched using two flower punches (again purchases from Hobbycraft).  I used a border punch around the edge of the image and a burgundy fibre (a candy win from Ellephantastic - thanks again Helen).

The spotty paper is from my craft stash and the little hearts were punched from Burgundy card.
Now I decided to follow the sketch and Sketch Saturday who also wanted you to include Pets that's why I chose the Kitty image.  Here is their sketch:
