A new challenge is underway at Die Cut Divas

Yes, August has arrived and with it.... Paula has challenged us to use her superb sketch at Die Cut Divas

 Our sponsor's this month are Eureka Stamps and  QKR Stampede.  For my card I used Eureka Stamps "Cool Cat with Shades"

I used an embossing folder that I got with a Magazine to embossed the card and them distressed with ink.  I printed and coloured the cat and cut with a Spellbinders die.  I made the frame with the dies as well.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp die and stamp set.    My buttons are two that I made myself with some resin and molds.  As you can see I stuck to the sketch quite literally.  Hop over to the blog to see what Arlene and Paula created.  It is always such fun to see how people interpret a sketch.

I'm going to spend some time tomorrow stamping with my friends.  It's been a couple of months since we all got together... so looking forward to catching up with everyone.  I'm taking my new Penny Black stamps so hoping to get a few cards made.

Thanks for visiting.  Feel free to leave me a comment... I appreciate them all...and now I've fixed my comments I look forward to hearing from you.
