Here we are again with another fortnightly challenge from 
Our challenge is to use a die cut shape.  We are being sponsored by
Inky Impressions
I was fortunate enough to meet with Nicole, the owner of Inky Impressions, once at a craft convention in Akron, OH.  They are located in Ohio and rarely travel to other conventions so to meet them you must come here.  Since I'm already here I got lucky.  
The image I am using is "Work Out Cat".  I have colored with Copic markers and added some Glossy Accents and Wink of Stella to sparkle up her work out suit.  My die cut comes from Spellbinders.  The embossing folder is Darice.  The papers are from The Paper Co., Scrapbooking Supplies and generic.  The gems are Martha Stewart and the ribbon is from Offray.  
I made the sentiment on Word specifically for me and my sister.  We are going to be doing some working out.  She just doesn't know it yet.  I have mailed this card to her.  I'm not sure if she will have it before this goes live or not.  Hopefully she will be joining me in this effort.  
She got the card in the mail already and has agreed to "do this thing" with me.  YEA!!
Please check out the great creations my fellow DT have made for you at Crafting When We Can and make sure to leave them some love.

What a fabulous interpretation of our "five" theme! You did such a great job of combining all of those different colors and papers! I really like the diagonal background and the bits of bling you added. The sentiment goes perfectly with the image and the whole thing made me smile. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
