Practicing Creativity

Crabby Cat Christmas card – Catch the Bug Christmas Chaos #4

Bugaboo Crabby Cat Christmas digistamp, colored with Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils, card design by Paperesse.
Up to challenge #4 in the the week long Bugaboo Digistamps Christmas Chaos week of challenges. This challenge is a recipe: 1 image, 1 one word sentiment, 2 different embellishments and 3 layers of paper.

Today's card focal image uses the Crabby Cat Christmas digistamp. The outside sentiment says, 'Yo!', the inside says, 'Have the Happiest of Holidays!'. I thought Mr Crabby Cat looked a little edgy, a little urban, so to match him and his sentiment I used the Splattered digital paper pack from Tactile Studio.

My two embellishments on this card are proof that sometimes that hoarding excuse, 'But someday I might use it!' does at times come true. I've had both the ribbon chain spool and bowtie pack a while now, but this is the first time I've used either of them.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Tactile Studio Splattered digital paper pack
Digital stamp – Bugaboo Crabby Cat Christmas
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Embellishments – ribbon chain, bowtie
Font – Mister Sirloin BTN 

I'm also linking up with: Unicorn Challenge #4 – Wintertime, TTCRD #9 – Anything Goes, Your Scrapbook Place Dec. – Anything Goes, and Sisters of Craft Dec. – Anything Goes.
