Marcy's Glorious Cat Nap

My daughter, Brianne, recently captured this adorable photo of her gorgeous sweetie, Marcy, catching a cat nap! Isn’t this photo absolutely priceless?!  
All stretched out….very relaxed….paws together….head on the pillow....WOW!

A few flowers, die cut leaves, stenciling and beaded trim were all that was needed to minimally embellish this already beautifully printed paper!  I used acrylic gold metallic paint on the chipboard letters as well as sparsely sponged onto the layout for an aged look.  LOVE it!

Watercolor paper sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Wake me before you go Gold frames the photo and was also die cut into those gorgeous leafy vines.  Adding LSG SB Golden Sleigh Bells (a true “Christmas” gold) to the dark brown ribbon of the bead trim resulted in a beautiful gold shimmer!
Gold Crackle stenciling added a little more “drama” to this page.
Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!  Lisa : )   >^..^<
