Last Bit of Halloween for 2017

     Yes, yes, I know Halloween was over last night but I had to share with you my final Halloween card for the year.  This is my DT card for the new challenge beginning today at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and running through the entire month of November.  The sponsor is Sparkle n Sprinkle and they generously supplied images for the DT to use.

     The puppy is the image ("A Puppy's Halloween") and the cat is a die cut (Cheery Lynn.)  The only reason the cat is on the card is because my two feline fur babies objected loudly (and constantly) to a dog even being in their house, much less getting a solo spot on the card.  lol

     I used ProMarkers to color the pup, then cut him with a die from Cottage Cutz.  The sentiment was part of the set from Sparkle n Sprinkle and I cut it with another die from that same set.  The paw print paper I made by stamping a scrap of white CS with a rubber stamp, trimming it to the size I wanted, and adding it to the card front.  The orange strip was another scrap and I layered it on, then added the image and sentiment pieces.

     The final touches were the black, bow tie, ribbon bow which I tied using my bow maker and the die cut cat.  I did color the cat's eyes with a green ProMarker after I put it on the paw print paper.  That really made the cat come alive.  :-D
