Lost and Found Cat

     When I saw this image in the store at Createful Hearts, my own heart just melted.  Our newest challenge starts today and this just seemed like a perfect autumn image for my DT card.  It's called "Pumpkin Patch Kitty" and I know you're going to love it, too (even if you're not a 'crazy cat lady.')  Our theme is "Anything Goes" and you can use whatever image you want to enter.

     I colored this one with ProMarkers and cut the frame for it with a die from Sue Wilson.  In this case, the frame is the negative piece of the cut and it's placed over the image, not the other way round.

     The two papers for the background are both from the Linen Closet stack (DCWV), one of my absolute favorites of all time because the colors and patterns are just so versatile.  The brown one with the tiny leaves is embossed and glittered.  I added sheer ribbon and tied it into a bow.
