I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir Markers and paper pieced the pillow. When I paper piece, I use a black water based marker to edge the pieces. The black edge helps to provide a nice finish. I used IG1 to give the pillow a little shading.
To color the kitten, I colored her with IG4 and then used IG1 and the Blender to dot in some texture.
I used punches to cut out different size circles from my scraps to match the design paper. On the inside I added a sentiment that comes in the set and layered it on a piece of the design paper.
A bright card for a bright little 1 year old!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
