A little cat hair...

Hi there!

Well I am back in my comfort zone today with this cool spider web paper that I got recently. It just might be my favorite print that has been released this year and I've been anxious to get it on a card. But I needed just the right image to pair with it, something elegant and a bit more mature... that is where Cat Hat comes in to play. She's another gorgeous digi from A Day for Daisies and I love how her kitty has snuggled up right in the middle of her billowing up-do. Cat Hat was looking so elegant that I even gave her some bling in the form of some jeweled earrings. I also dusted off an old Martha Stewart border punch to make some black paper lace so that I could enter this card into the current 'add black lace' challenge over at the ADFD blog
Before I go, I had to share this photo of my sweet Sully because it fit the theme of today's post so well. This is pretty much where he was for the better part of creating this card and he didn't even want to wake up and move when it came time for me to get a pic. Sigh... Cat Hat knows that once a kitty finds a comfy spot there is nothing to do but let them sleep, LOL!

Adios amigos!  :)

OH WOW!! Amy, this is a stunner. I don't remember ever even seeing this image in the ADFD store - now I've got to go find her and color her myself. You've created such marvelous depth and the card is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing this in our Black Lace challenge. Take care.

Wow. AMAZING colouring job! Black is so hard to colour but you made the fabric look so classy and the cat look so furry! The skin is most amazing to me - what a great job with the shadows - right down to the eye make up! Stunning!
