Kitty Under the Tree

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Kimberli Greget - thank you for joining me!  If you would like to leave a link to your blog in the comments, I will hop over and follow you too!

Today I'm sharing a card I made with my new stamp set from Hero Arts called Meowy Christmas.  I just received it and was excited to ink it up!  While searching online, I came across a card shown below (scroll way down) that inspired me, so I decided to CASE it!  

I started with the background, ink-blended Distress Oxide Spun Sugar and heat-embossed the tree (WOW iced silver).  I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the images and adhered.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment in black.  I overstamped the "meowy" to emphasize it.  Here's an angled view to show the sparkly silver embossing.

Here is the card that inspired me, by Jessica Frost-Ballas on the Hero Arts blog, so cute!

I was also inspired by the following 5 challenges:

I love the pink and silver. Great take on the inspiration for your card. I love the soft blending behind the tree. It looks like it's lit up in pink lights.
