Raining Cats and Dogs Mid-Way Challenge Reminder

    If you're looking for my MHK Designs post, please click here.

     We're mid-way through our challenge for April at Quirky Crafts and I want to share with you another card using an image from our sponsor, Crackerbox Palace.  This one is called "Cat and Dog" and, obviously, the cat is focusing all his attention on the dog.  :-D


I used the sketch at Sweet Sketch Weds 2 (turned 1/4 turn)
and I took my colors from the challenge at Color Q
but the only pale pink is on the cat's ears and mouth.

    

     Image is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a Spellbinders die.  The two mats are lightly embossed with a "Linen" folder and then punched to round the corners.  I used three ribbon scraps from my stash for embellishment, two of them to tie the double-color bow.  It's hard to tell but the sheer, gold ribbon is sparkly with bits of micro-glitter on it.  The background dp is a leftover scrap (My Mind's Eye.)

     Challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons (1st diagonal)

     Don't forget to come play along in our Quirky Raining Cat and Dogs challenge before it ends on April 28.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

These two little cuties look like that perfect pair of friends. Love the diamond paper backing them up and your corner treatments on the other papers. Nice bow also. Enjoy the upcoming week, Connie.
