Pumpkin Kitty

     There's a new challenge starting today over at Tuesday Throwdown and we have Sugar Pea Designs sponsoring us this week.   Our theme is "Clean And Simple" (CAS), meaning lots of open space and minimal embellishment in the card design.  I chose to do one last Halloween card because I simply couldn't resist this precious kitten peeking out of a pumpkin.   I don't have any Sugar Pea images in my collection so I used an image from AuroraWings.


     I colored the image with my ProMarkers, deciding right away that this was a little white kitten, not a black cat.  :-D  I also decided to use my three favorite fall colors (goldenrod, orange and black) instead of the typical Halloween colors.   I added glitter to the pumpkin face and waited for it to dry.   Then, I cut the image with a hexagon die from QuicKutz and matted it with another die cut one size larger.

     Everything went onto a yellow pre-made card base.  I added the matted sentiment and three, tiny, black rhinestones, then left it alone.  The entire card, including the coloring process, took less than 45 minutes but it also gave me a chance to use up one more pre-made card base from my stash.
