National Cat Day

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

Today's festivities are in celebration of National Cat Day, which takes place on October 29th. The challenge runs from October 15th - October 25th.

I like to create a card for our challenge that goes with the celebration theme. To create my card, I used Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cat Halloween stamp set to create a Halloween scene. The background is cut from a sheet of Halloween themed patterned paper from Creative Memories that has been in my stash for a very long time. I stamped, Copic colored and fussy cut the cat, pumpkin, broom and bat images and arranged them on the panel of patterned paper. I gave the bat a heavy coating of Wink Of Stella for texture and sparkle, and adhered that panel to a slimline die cut panel from Catherine Pooler's Essentials Slimline Dies 
I used cat, orange and texture from the inspo list. 

Come play with us! Remember that your project does not have to go with the challenge theme. You can just use 3 or more items from the inspo list for your creation!

I just love the expression on your cat's face Stephanie - priceless! The background makes for a perfectly spooky card too.

Stephanie, I am not sure if the cat is surprised by finding a broom in it's paws or he's surprised because it doesn't play music... either way.. he made me laugh! I love how the orange against that background but your little kitty blends in - all adding to that wonderful atmosphere. Love it!
