Newton's Nook Designs June Release - Newton's Support

Hi there! Today is the final reveal day of Newton's Nook Designs June release and today we're showcasing Newton's Support.This set is near and dear to my heart. Last week we had to say goodbye to our precious Molly after a brave fight against Feline Lymphoma. Although we miss her terribly, I feel so blessed and grateful that she had such a long and happy life and even made it to her 16th birthday! She will always be in our hearts and memories and I take comfort in knowing she's resting in peace now in kitty heaven.
For today's post, I made an encouragement card using the sweet image of Newton. This set has such sweet and encouraging sentiments for anyone going through a difficult time.
I started off by cutting a piece of smooth white card stock using a stitched square die. I stamped Newton and the sentiment using my mini MISTI tool for perfect placement. I colored Newton with Copic Markers and then cut out a mask using masking paper. I lightly blended Spun Sugar distress ink around Newton to create a light pink halo. I then cut a thin strip of white card stock using a stitched scalloped border die and glued it to the bottom of the panel.

For the background, I cut a piece of pink polka dot pattern paper using a stitched rectangle die. I die cut a strip of white card stock using a stitched border die and glued it to towards the top of the background panel. I then die cut a bow from white card stock and three times from pink card stock. This gave the bow some added stability and dimension. I also like how from the side you see a little pop of pink. I added a few Marshmallow sequins and a few sequins to the bow as well. To finish the card, I added clear Wink of Stella to the pink ribbon.
