Hello Kitty

I used the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge to add elements to my page, It's a little odd for Kitty to be in bed for a V-day sketch but, I am planning on putting Emily's Valentine gift in bed before she wakes up and will go in and take pics while she's sleeping and after she wakes up to get her reaction, so now that I've explained the layout here's how I made it. I turned to sketch to the right because my paper has a bicycle on the back and I wanted to be able to use it on the other page. 
The paper is Bo bunny, I cut the paper at 4 inches and flipped the smaller piece over and put it back together with the scallop border strip.  My goal for the future is to make my scrapbook pages a little lighter and not so thick, so I plan to utilize this technique more often, I also will use both sides of the pages instead of wasting, it will also take away from the thickness aspect.  
I cut Kitty at 4 1/2 inches and placed her so the bed is off the page and trimmed the excess.  The I love you is cut at 3 1/2.  The colors aren't Valentine but they don't have to be pink and red, my daughter has so many pink pj's I didn't want the colors to blend with her outfit. I put stickles on the yellow circles and added some to the dots on the paper and did the same with purple as well.  The little dots under the picture are stickles too

 Above is a close up of Kitty, she is cut from pearly white paper, so pretty and you can see the stickles dots below the one photo mat.  I couldn't get the purple to make nice dots :(
Below is a close up of my added sickles to the main images of the paper.

Thanks for looking, I really enjoy your comments, feel free to leave advice for adding to this, I feel it's a little plain.
