Leaves are Falling

Hello, everyone.  Tonight I am sharing a fall card I made today.  This cute kitty is called Cat in Fall and she is being offered as a freebie this week at Digi Darla's Challenges for their fall-themed copycat challenge.  I already had this kitty and I've been wanting to use her, so this was the perfect time.  I followed a sketch from this month's fall-themed sketch challenge at Little Claire's Designs (see sketch and inspiration photo at bottom).


I started off by layering two leaf-patterned digi paper panels onto green cardstock according to the sketch.  The beautiful digi papers were a freebie from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.  I then wrapped the panel with orange ribbon and affixed to a white card base.  I coloured the cute kitty with pencils, mounted on brown and then green cardstock, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I printed the digi sentiment, which was a freebie from Create with TLC, sponged and edged in orange ink, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  Lastly I embellished with three leaves, an orange ribbon bow, and 3 brown dew drops.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp:  Cat in Fall - Digi Darla's Challenges (thank you)
  • Digi sentiment:  Create with TLC (thank you, Paulette)
  • Digi papersDecosse's Dynamite Doodles (thank you, Lisa)
  • Ink:  Stampin' Up! (for sponging/edging)
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Dew drops:  Robin's Nest
  • Leaves, ribbon:  Dollarama

  62. Hey Kitty, I was just over at the DD sight and and saw this awesome card made top three. Congrats my dear! Now I am really going to sound conceited but it was really cool seeing your sweet card as part of the top three with my leaf paper in the background. I'm like a proud mama seeing how my creations are making it in the real world! Okay sinful boasting moment done.

    If you've left me any messages I apologize, I'm soooooooooo far behind in my mail but I'll get to you when I can. If you haven't left me a message then I am sorry for confusing you and no, really I am not crazy, just a bit flustered!
