Elegant Dining

     I love Rick St. Dennis images and the whimsy he builds into his images of critters large and small, but especially his sassy felines.  This is an image I've had for a while but somehow never used until now.  Based on Tomcat's fine, silk, smoking jacket and silver fork, I just know this is the best there is in a feline's elegant dining!



     I colored with my ProMarkers and then cut the image with a stitched die from Gina Marie.  The dies from that set are all rectangles, but I shifted the die over, cut a second time, and got a square for the image.  I cut a simple rectangle for the red CS background and added golden yellow, satin ribbon before mounting it onto the card front.  I tied the gingham bow by hand and then heat embossed the sentiment with silver EP.

     Now that he's won the fishing derby, and the rat catching contest, he's retiring to his chef's kitchen to see if he can take top honors in the cooking and eating competitions. lol  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
