Wiper Card - Kid with Pumpkin Cart

Hello, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my new followers:  Angela JohnsonTonnie Deijkers, and Dee Burns, and also my new follower on Bloglovin', Juliet Newton.

Today I tried a new card style (well, new to me!).  It's called a wiper card and I was intrigued by a tutorial I saw over at Scrapbook Blessings Club.  I have not seen this style of card before so I just had to try it!

It looks 3-D when open, and out pops the little "wiper" at the top.  And it all folds up to the size of a regular card which fits into an A2 envelope. Here's another view.

The image I used is the September progressive challenge digi from Gerda Steiner Designs called Kid with Pumpkin Cart.  I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils. Here are the other supplies used:

And since there's no kitty on this card, I wanted to share a photo of my new kitty (well, she's actually Brian's kitty, but we're all one big, happy family now!).  This is Snowy aka Snowbug.

I would like to support the following challenges:
