Here Kitty!

I try and join in a card chain challenge every month which is hosted by Deborah in  America.
The april challenge was to use  any or all of the following:
A  colour swatch of orange/peach
A sketch to follow
A Penny black stamp/digi.

I managed to use 2 of the requirements. The colours and the cats/friendship theme.

The digi image is by Ladybug Crafts and is called Catflap-Magnum. I coloured the image using my promarkers and die cut using Spellbinders Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares. I used orange embroidery thread to stitch through the holes around the edge of the image. The footprint paper is my own design. I have had the paw stamp for a very long time well before stamping became fashionable.
I had previously used it on a card I made and showed last month.
I used to breed /show persians and I used the stamp on my stationery and pedigree forms. 
I layered the card up with three different coloured orange/peach card stock.
I created the sentiment in  word and the square pearls were in my stash. 
My card went to Jo 'Dotty Pudding' in the UK this time. 

I used some more of my design paper on the inside along with another stitched die cut square.
