You're One Crazy Cat

Today's guest host for the sketch challenge at Split Coast was Amelia who I think is about 11 years old - her mother is Wendybells on SCS.

This is the sketch she designed for us to use today. Didn't she do a great job?!?!

And here is my card based on the sketch.

I just got my fun new PaperTrey set - Spooky Sweets II and the floral circle stamp worked perfectly for the sketch. I stamped that with Vintage Violet Ink. I used 2 different Halloween designer papers. This card is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" so the DP's are two 4" squares each cut in half diagonally - so you can make 2 cards!

I cut the big circles with Nestabilities and the sentiment circles with punches. I stamped the crazy cat with black ink in the center and added gemstones for it's eyes, tail and on the sentiment.

The seasons really jump fast in the stamping world huh!?!?! Summer isn't even over yet - but it is supposed to get down to 50 degrees here tonight - and that feels like fall - sleeping with blankets and everything!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

The kitty eyes caught me on this one! I like this sketch and the bling was a perfect touch to this spooky card. I guess I am going to have to dig out my halloween stamps soon!
