Glitter n Sparkle DT - Cards for Men or Male Colours

Hello, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my five newest followers - Ivonne, Einat Alagem, Noor Azlina Abdul Samad K., Susan Browning, and dmshroeder57 - so happy to have you join me!  

Can you believe it's Sunday already!  We have a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week our challenge is Cards for Men or Male Colours.  I went with male colours!  Check out the cute image I got to play with for our challenge.  It's called Kitten in a Teacup from Aurora Wings by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff, and I had a lot of fun colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I printed the image twice and fussy-cut just the kitty's head, which I popped up with foam tape.

Here are the other items used:
