Feline Festive

Hi, everybody!  I'm back again today with another holiday card, this one in non-traditional colours.  My card features stamps from Newton's Nook Ornamental Newton and the holly stamp from Carolling Newton.  I coloured the images with markers and then fussy-cut.  I added some detail with a white paint pen and applied Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle all over the ornament, but I don't think it's visible in the photo.

The pine branch die is from Impression Obsession and the background panel is embossed with a pine branch background. I adhered Newton with foam tape, stamped a sentiment, and adhered the small stamped images, three punched snowflakes (Recollectons), and a punched bow (Tim Holtz).

My card design was inspired by Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge 162, which is a sketch:

I would also like to join the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:

I really like the way you interpreted the sketch Kitty, you were very creative with it. The image is super cute and you did a great job with the colouring and fussy cutting... I love how you've attached the bauble to the die cut pine branch, that's a cute detail.
