Snow Cool Kitty

Hi, everybody!  I've made another kitty card for the holidays!  I hope to get as many cards as possible made ahead of time so I won't have to scramble this year!

I coloured the kitty with markers and added Glossy Accents on her eyes.  I made a little snow scene for my kitty with an ink-smooshed background and layered it onto patterned and sparkly papers according to the sketch mentioned below.  The sentiment was heat-embossed in white on a black scrap and I added some die-cut mittens and a few snowflake sequins.

Stamps:  Kitty (Your Next Stamp Hello Winter), sentiment (Your Next Stamp Waddles Winter Wonderland)
Ink: Background behind kitty (Distress Inks Broken China, Tumbled Glass), cat (Lawn Fawn Jet Black), sentiment (Versamark)
Patterned paper:  Echo Park
Other: Ranger white embossing powder, Heidi Swapp glitter paper, Glossy Accents (added to kitty's eyes), snowflake sequins

I was inspired by Sketch 485 at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  With this sketch they are honouring a former DT member Jessi, who recently passed away:

I was also inspired by the following 9 challenges:
Card Mania Baby, It's Cold Outside 3/3
Crafter's Castle 13 AG Optional Fun Technique (colouring with markers) 2/4 C10
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper January UE

Double Trouble 19 Thing 1 (warm and cozy theme with image on patterned or embossed background), Thing 2 (favourite things mittens and kitten; if using mittens join Creative with Stamps), Thing 3 (mittens and kitten) 2/4
Simon Says Stamp Monday Use Something New (YNS Hello Winter stamps are new, first time I'm using) 2/5
Simon Says Stamp Work-it Wednesday Something New (YNS Hello Winter stamps are new, first time I'm using) 3/3
