Purr-fect Day!

Hey there!!

Today i have a card i made for Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #8. Its a sketch challenge (today's the last day!):

I started by die cutting a tag from watercolor paper. I stamped the images, doing a little masking, then coloring them with distress markers. I used a very dark deep pink card base and found some stripe pink pattern paper to match.

I trimmed the pattern paper to cover the bottom half of the card base and used a scrap of Kraft paper as a border btw the card base and the pattern paper. I also die cut a banner from Kraft and stamped the sentiment in brown ink, then added it to my card base along the Kraft border.

I added some twine to the tag and adhered it to my card base with foam dots.Last i added a couple of sequins! (cuz i made a mistake that i needed to hide... i mean i wanted to from the get-go.... really! )  :D
