A Cat's Halloween
This is my first 'twisted easel' card. I was looking for something to make that was a little different (for me) and decided to try one of these twisted type cards. I found the feather on one of my walks with my dog and thought, ooh it looks spooky, I better take it home and see what I can do with it (it actually comes from a Magpie so it has a lot of very dark green colour in it, so it is not totally spooky -lol) I do not normally send out Halloween cards but I think I know of one young girl who might find it fun. The cat stamp is from Doodle Pantry and is called 'Cute Kitten'. The flowers are DIY, the green bats are from a Cuttlebug Cut & Emboss set called Creepy and the happy Halloween sentiment is from a Halloween paper set I had bought several years ago. I used the Stampendous Marble Texture Cube to give the bottom of the easel card the added spooky texture, but left the top part bare as I liked the starkness of it.
Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge: the theme is Cute Halloween/Fall card for kids and is sponsored by Doodle Pantry (Sept 17th - Sept. 30th ,2011). My card is a DT only entry and the card is simply to celebrate the challenge. Please go take a look at the challenge, it is for such a worthy cause and you could win a Doodle pantry prize! My card was made for an eleven year but the Send a Smile for a Kid group lists 0 -19yrs, so it can encompass a fairly wide range of age groups.
