I was so ashamed of Bauble Cat card number one due to the awful highlights on the bauble and the too dark colours, it's below a couple of posts, I almost didn't post it and if it hadn't been for the challenge and if there had been enough time before it went live I would have ditched it and made another.
So here is my second attempt and I am really happy with this one, same as before Ike's Art Bauble Cat was supplied by Stitchy Bear Digital stamps who are sponsoring the Quirky Crafts Challenge this time. The challenge is Christmas in July with dies or punches (or both).
I die cut the cat with a Spellbinders Heirloom Bauble die and coloured the image (made the cat Siamese this time) and bauble with Promarkers. The papers are DCWV, and gold card are also die cut with a 5" x 7" card maker die set, and the poinsettia is also Spellbinders. The pine branch is, as before, punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The Let it Snow ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. Finally I added a red bow and some flat back pearls.
Again I decorated the inside to match, the card blanks are poor quality so I am hiding that a bit with papers.
This card will be perfect for Mum and Dad who have a Siamese (called Katy, although she is a very slender cat not like Ike's cat), who loves watching snow on TV.
I forgot to say today is my birthday! Also I now have 100 followers, so I think I might do a little candy soon!
This card purred its was into the following challenges (max 10):
