Cat Lovers Hop - Day 3 (Holiday Cheer)

Hello, everyone!  It's the third day of the Cat Lovers Hop!  Have you joined yet? Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for organizing it - I am enjoying myself! Check out the guidelines and FAQ over on Janis's blog here.

Today my card features a cute kitty from Magenta called Deck the Halls - Decorated Cat, which I coloured with watercolor markers and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I added Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to the ornaments.

I created the background using a stencil from Magenta called Small Birch Forest. I sponged Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks through the stencil and then added falling snow with a white gel pen. Magenta has a challenge this month to use one Magenta stamp, one or more other Magenta products, and one colour (other neutrals allowed), so I'm joining over there as well.

I die-cut Impression Obsession snowflakes and Paper Smooches sentiment and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder to give them shine and texture.

I hope you head over to the Cat Lovers Hop and join in!

I would also like to join the following challenges:
The Daily Marker - Kathy Racoosin's 30-Day Colouring Challenge
Vintage Stamping Use a Die/Dies 1/3

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
