2 for 1 Creation ..


Here is a card I created last evening to satisfy two different challenges. The layout is for the Carol's Sketch Fun #13 challenge and the "theme" is for the ANIMAL - Stamp Something challenge.
I decided to use this awesome "cat" image from The Rubber Cafe and I've stamped in both Versafine sepia and black inks. The sponging around the outer edge was done with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink. The antique brass brads are by Making memories. The designer papers I chose to use are all from the Stampin' Up "To the Nines" specialty pack. They have texture and depth .. perfect for this layout design.
Hope you enjoyed this creation! PLEASE come back tomorrow when I have a BIG announcement and some exciting news to share with you!!!! Until then ... have a great, fun day!!!
