WWC283 - Tristan's Challenge: Anything Goes With a Feminine Twist

For Tristan's challenge this week, I decided to get in touch with my inner "cat person".  Seriously, I've been accumulating a lot of cat dies of all kinds lately and am happy to be able to use one.  

Isn't it darling?  For my background I used a Darice embossing folder with a combination of debossed and embossed pawprints.  I love the variation, don't you?

For a change my base is Basic Black which make the embossed Whisper White layer stand out beautifully.  I used the little "cat in the square" die to cut out a piece of Basic Black and then used my stitched square die to cut out a piece of Whisper White which I used as a backing.  That allowed me to colour the background a very soft green, the inside of the ears a very soft pink and the eyes a warm yellow.  The sentiment from the retired Pretty Kitty stamp set works perfectly, doesn't it?

I love the way the card turned out and hope you do, too.  Have fun checking out our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I hope you'll link your creation before the deadline on Monday,  August 10th.
