Father’s Day Kitty

Wahoo for Saturday's and a new challenge over at One Stop Crafts! This week the DT was challenged to create a Father's Day card. I had fun using a cute cat image from our sponsor, Robyn's Fetish. The image was actually a duo, and I just cut out one of the cats. We hope you'll make time to come and play with us!

Sketch Inspiration ~ Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #71
This is an old sketch I've been meaning to play with. I took it to the CAS style.
Inspiration
The Corrosive Challenge #119 ~ Summer Colors The blue reminds me of the water at the beach and the red would be my fair skin after spending a summer day there!
Father's Day/Men Challenges: One Stop Craft Challenge #135; The Crazy Challenge #70; Creative Inspirations Challenge #115; The Stamping Boutique Challenge #8
The Shabby Tea Room Challenge #65 ~ Embossing
Digi Doodles Challenge #62 ~ No Backing Papers The challenge is to NOT use any patterned papers for your card background. That's tricky since I tend to always do so. I embossed a panel instead.

My Creation

Image Detail
I used SU markers to color the blue and red portions and a grey colored pencil to give a bit o shading and texture to the body. Spicas provided a bit of glittery sheen over the top.
