Fall Scene Birthday (Newton's Nook image)

Hello, everyone!   Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my three new followers - Terrie and Asmah (on GFC), and Mandz (on Bloglovin') - so happy that you have joined me!

My card features an adorable kitty from the Newton's Daydream set, from Newton's Nook Designs.  I just love this sweet little kitty!  I decided to make him an orange tabby, just like the real Newton! I coloured him with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.  He is popped up with foam tape.

There's a fall colour challenge over at the Newton's Nook blog and I couldn't resist!  I decided to make a little fall scene.  This is the first time I've made my own sky by sponging chalk over a cloud template.  I followed the tutorial and used the template I found at Netty's Cards - thank you!  

For the grassy hills, I decided not to use my grass die, but instead I cut the green cardstock with grass-like craft scissors as I never seem to use them any more.  Then I sponged with distress ink to make them stand out a bit.  I also added some sponging under Newton.  I used my Cheery Lynn tree die and my Impression Obsession leaves. Then I added a tiny birthday sentiment using a wood-mount from The Old Island Stamp Company.

I saw your comments at Pixie's Crafty Workshop so I decided to come for a visit! Wow! Love your autumn scene, so beautiful. I also love how you use craft scissors to cut the grass. Lovely card! (By the way, just curious about the various numbers you have after each challenge, e.g. 2/3, 2/5, 3/3. What do they mean? I am a curious cat! ^_^)

Liz said...

I love this cute card! Great ideas for using the fancy scissors for the grass. I must dust mine off and see if I've got a similar pair! xx

Irene said...

A brilliant Autumnal scene, love the falling leaves and adorable kitty.


Annette said...

It's GORGEOUS Kitty. The kitten is so cute (he looks like my furbaby Arnie) and the background it lovely. I love cards that create a scene in the space. The clouds look fab. Thanks for your email letting me know you were using the template. It's fab and I love seeing that others like it enough to make use of it. :0)
Have a lovely Sunday.

Annette said...

Hmm, I'm guessing the numbers are the number of times you've actually entered out of the maximum number of times permitted by each challenge???? If so, is "UE" Unlimited Entries?
