Potted Cat(tails)?

     I adore this darling image of a kitty in a garden pot!  It came from the Outlawz Progressive challenge and it was drawn by Anne Fenton.  You know it thrilled me to pieces.  :-D




     I colored with my ProMarkers, then used a die from Cheery Lynn to cut it.  I took the glitter idea from my dear friend, Donna, at Creative Smiles.  She gave a great tutorial on one way to accomplish adding glitter to the negative spaces in a die cut and you can see it here.  Thanks, Donna.  :-D

    I wish my glitter showed up better in the photo and I forgot to take a close up shot before sending the card off to it's final destination.  :-(

     I used a gray-green card base, added a bow made from gingham ribbon, and finally printed the sentiment and added it.

Love your cat card, I even joined the progressive challenge at the Outlawz to see if it was still available😊 I used to belong to the group, but when my account there disappeared and I had to rejoin the site, I forgot about it.🙄
