I have a dear friend who adores cats and kittens as much as I do and each Christmas I make her a card with kittens. So, when I saw this adorable clip art image, I 'pounced' on it and made her Christmas card for this year. Once again, I took a color image and printed it in light gray scale before coloring it myself. The great thing about printing in gray scale is that you get all the shading and highlights which were in the original but you choose your own color palette.
I colored with a combo of Sanjoki markers (sky and wall) and polychromos pencils (kittens, birds, and cherries on tree), plus white gel pen for snowflakes. I cut the image with a square QuicKutz die and framed it with white CS, also cut with a Quickutz die. The holly paper came from the scrap basket and I think it was from DCWV. The sentiment is from Beccy's Place and I cut it with an Avery Elle die.
Because this one has to be mailed, I left it very flat and without fancy embellishment.
