Addicted To CAS Two

Hi All,
as promised I am back with some more inspiration, this time in the form of a CAS card, which is no coincidence as it is my second outing as Guest Designer over at Addicted to CAS.

You might have guessed it, today's code word is: Animal ... and that for me means usually anything catty. :-)

The lovely Joanna from Harty by Heart is your hostess for the next couple of weeks and Create A Smile Stamps are sponsoring the challenge ... which reminds me, I am one of the lucky ones who were able to get one of their exclusive Sunshine Kits. It's still in the post as of the time of writing, but it should be with me soon. I already got plans of what to do with it! :-)

Back to my card now ... it was quite easy to make ... I used a quote about animals to create my own digi stamp to fit my die-cut cat, printed it out and cut my panel to size. I then sponged rainbow colours through part of the Confetti Circles ARTplorations stencil before attaching my black cat and layering on my base card. I loved this concept so much that I made another card with a landscape layout and some stamped stitching to ground the cat.

I am entering my cards at:
Happy Little Stampers CAS - die cuts/punches, the black cat is a die cut (hope it is still o.k. if I complete the link up on Monday, when I am back from my long weekend away)

Well, that's it from me for today. I shall be back with two!!! posts on Monday, one for inspiration and the other one for the ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop. Hope to see you there.

Have a lovely weekend!
