Glitter n Sparkle Challenge - Add Some Red

It's challenge time again at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog, and this week's theme is Add Some Red.  I got to play with this cute cat image from one of our sponsors, Scribbles Designs, called Alley Cat.  This made me happy!  By now, I'm sure you all know - I love cats! 

This card was so much fun to make!  I coloured the image with pencils, fussy-cut, and affixed with foam tape.  For the background, I used red brick papers that were a freebie from Far Far Hill (thank you!) with black handmade specialty paper on the bottom, and then added red ribbon and bow.  The sentiment, which says "Have a Purr-fectly Delightful Day," is from Create with TLC (thank you, Paulette).  I printed the sentiment on white cardstock, die-cut with a scalloped square, sponged with black ink, and affixed with foam tape.  I embellished with three cat-themed buttons (I snipped off the backs).  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Digital Stamp and Sentiment:  See above
  • Coloured Pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Specialty Paper:  Memory Star
  • Brick Paper:  See above
  • Die Cut:  Spellbinders Big Scalloped Squares
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Buttons:  Dress It Up
  • Ribbon:  Dollarama

While I was checking out the entries over at Scribbles I noticed you had entered. You've done an amazing job with alley cat. Love that background paper (thanks for letting us know it was from Far, Far, Hill--I will be headed there to check it out). Also love all the sweet embellishments you've used. Fantastic work!
