Sentimental Sundays~ Color Recipe/ Thanks For Lunch

Hi Guys!
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. :-)
Now when you look at this card don't you wonder exactly which lunch the cat is grateful for??? Cats and celery? I don't think so!lol
This week's challenge at Sentimental Sundays is a recipe:

So I thought that those were good colors for a cat!
Don't laugh, Tine!
(I always make orange cats)
Ive used papers from K&Co and DCWV and distress inks to darken the edges of my background paper.
The sentiment is made on the computer and the image is Mo Manning
The bradz I can't remember where I bought. I'm thinking they may be SU or from a scrapbooking shop that closed down some years ago.
The dies are Spellbinders Nestabilities and I just pierced the image with a piercing tool for interest.

And the sentiment.

I would like to play with:
 Our Creative Corner: Three colors next to eachother on the color wheel
Fuzzy Wuzzy: animal, anythinggoes
I think that's it for today!

Very nice card! I admire, that you can leave white spaces on your pictures - I would have colored the whole cat, and then it would have looked awful...
Have a nice Sunday!

Dorcas this is superb, such a cute little cat, I feel sorry for those little mice though ;p

Iulia said...

Hi, Dorcas! Your card is really special! First because it features a great image (which I haven;t seen before) and you've colored it to the perfection and secondly, because it made me laugh! It reminds me of a cat I had back in childhood my father was training to catch mice but somehow she had no interest in them:))maybe because it was too fat and well-fed!
Blessings to you! Always a pleasure to come by!

These are wonderful colors for a kitty cat card! Terrific work with all that layering and the ribbon - it really makes for a lush card. Great job on our analogous color challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.
