You Make Me Smile

Scrapbookaholic by Abby is having an s.e.i challenge this week.  We are supposed to make something that has to do with laughter or smiling.  Well, I've been thinking and thinking about what I could make for this, but I just had too many ideas and was having trouble choosing.  Then, I was checking out Always Crafting and saw that Stephanie is having her own challenge about Alice in Wonderland.  Well, smiling....Alice in Wonderland....what do you think of????  The Cheshire Cat, of course!  So, I KNEW I had to make a card with the Cheshire Cat to enter into both of these challenges.  Here's the card I came up with:

I got the Cheshire Cat SVG from Mardenz and cut it using Make-the-Cut.  If you use SVGs, this blog has TONS of cute free files.  It took quite a bit of time to put all of the pieces together for the cat, so patience was definitely needed!  :o)  But, I'm really happy with how he turned out.  The pink patterned paper is from K&Co's Amy Butler Belle stack.  I made the sentiment inside with Photoshop Elements and printed it out.  Then, I added some punched hearts and stitching lines, and my smiley card was all done!  I hope you like it!
