Happy Holidays Cup Kitties

Hello, everyone!  I am back with another winter holiday card!  I'm really enjoying all the challenges and events going on in blog land - so much inspiration everywhere!


The adorable cup kitties stamp is from Winnie and Walter's Purrfect with Evelin T Designs. I did some selective colouring with my markers and fussy-cut so I could pop it up with foam tape.  For the background I pieced together the colours from the inspiration graphic below and then die-cut with the largest stitched rectangle in Winnie and Walter's Essentials: Katharine Cutaways.  I like this colour blocking look!  I layered the stitched panel on an ivory card base. The die-cut sentiment is Winnie and Walter's In a Word: Happy Cutaway.  I also stamped a Happy Holidays sentiment (A Creative Journey by Melissa) and embellished with a number of punched snowflakes (Recollections punch).

My colour choices were inspired by Winnie and Walter's October Colour Challenge:


I was also inspired by Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards. It's an Alphabet Challenge, and I am jumping ahead to H for Happy Holidays.
