When Black Cats Prowl ...

      This fabulous image is from a set by my dear friend, Donna Ellis, and the set is also the prize at the current Inspiration Station challenge.  I just had to do this card to show it off.  :-D

     I merged the sentiment and the image before printing it in gray scale.  I used my ProMarkers to color the image and added a few highlights with a white gel pen.  I cut the image with a QuicKutz rectangle die and then used a Fiskars punch on three of the corners.  The black, glitter paper is from a DCWV stack (now retired), and the purple corners are dp from Paper House.  

     I added one of my signature, hand-sewn bows, plus a row of gemstones across each of the lower corners.  The bow has a tiny butterfly on it which was a drop-out piece from a Spellbinders die used for a different project months ago.


     Challenges:

     Have a great day and Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
