Puss in boots with a dash of red

This card uses one of the many fab LOTV images but is just so super cute I decided to go for a more elegant look by using shades of grey, black, white and a dash of red.
I used promarkers to add colour and mounted on a black oval cut with a spellbinders die.
I layered the oval on white embossed card that has a quilted effect and layered this onto red pattered mirri-card. i love how the light catches it and gives highlights of gold.
The sentiment is also LOTV just inked up in black and all topped off with a hand tied bow.


I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

love rubber stamps-anything goes
allsorts-use those dies
the squirrel and the fox-inspired by a book( more a story but a children's book)
hiding in my craft room- anything goes
As you like it-favourite animal and why( I love all animals from the fish and frogs in my pond to the unconditionally loving pet dogs I have been fortunate to share time with but at the moment I love the cat that decided to live on my patio 2 years ago, when he arrived you could see his ribs and he had lumps of fur missing. He never tries to come in the house and makes me laugh with his laid back attitude. I think if I come back to earth I'd like to be a cat, fed daily and laze in the sun with nothing to do.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cat (and associated story!!) with us at As You Like It. They do say cats choose their owners. We have had two "lodgers" move in with us on separate occasions. Good Luck. Sarah
