Hi, Friends.....

I rarely have time in October to post cards I've made because I am so busy with Cat Lovers Hop preparations.   I noticed, though, that Mrs. A had a lovely color palette on her current Butterfly Challenge post and I happened to have a card that fit that I made several months ago and never got blogged.  (I am soooooooo bad about not getting my cards blogged.  I have a zillion of them in drafts and never quite have the energy to actually get them posted.  Am I the only one like that???)

Take a look at the Butterfly Wheel that Mrs. A has for us this time.  So much pretty lavender and pink!!  ❤

She also mentions two patterned papers as one of the element options. I have a scrap background framing my card that might have two patterned papers in it, but it is mostly covered up and I can only see one patterned paper in it for sure, so I won't play with that element this time....just the colors.

My card features a super-fun Laurel Burch cat image stamped on a watercolor background I made.  I have stacks of these backgrounds and this is one of my favorite things to do lately.  Love how you can see a bit of the background showing through the images. 


Supplies used include:
Stampendous - Laurel Burch Feline Friends Like You stamp
Versafine ink in Smokey Gray
W&W Katharine
Scrap background
Mixed Media paper
Spectrum Noir markers
Wink of Stella pen
Thank you for stopping by today to take a look at my card.  I hope you will join in my Cat Lovers Hop festivities that I mention at the top of this post.  It's not too early to get started on your projects!!

  3. A fun cat card in nice colours.

    Come and grab a cup of hot chocolate in the Playground Treehouse. We refreshed the marshmallows so there's plenty to go round.

  4. Awww.... How sweet!!! LOVE the delicate colours and those fabulous cats!! Adorable card!
    I have a lot of old photos, but no time to write posts...

  5. So cute!!! What a great way to use the backgrounds you created!

  6. Fabulous card, Janis. I love the design and the colours are beautiful. xx

  7. I know the feeling about putting photos into draft posts then forgetting about them. I don't think I could have forgotten this fab card though, what a super cat image and lovely colours.

  8. I am so impressed by the way you were able to coordinate all the colors in your background, card base and image so perfectly. Love those Laurel Burch kitties already, but they look absolutely adorable in pink and lavender. I see that bit of sparkle from the Wink of Stella too!

  9. A beautiful card, perfect for any cat lover.
    Thank you for entering our Anything Goes Challenge at Through The Craft Room Door this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
    Hugs Sheryl xx
