The Cat Is Out Of The Bag

Hi all, I hope you're well!
I have something different to share with you today!
This is my very first post as part of the DT over at
Eureka Stamps!

I was delighted to receive an email inviting me to join 
the team of lovely & very talented ladies!
I'm super excited to be working with them all & with Eureka Stamps too!

The challenge theme for this week is
You can find the rules here

Now, here's my card.

The proverbial cat I mentioned is actually a 
The image is available as both a rubber & digi stamp.
I used the digi image to make my little CAS 1st Birthday card.
I printed the image out several times, on some paper from my snippets pile.
Next, I cut out sections & layered them up for some dimension. 
 The stripes were coloured with a prisma pencil to add definition.
The sentiment was printed directly on to the Kraft card base,
using a free font called Kirsten ITC.

The ribbon is upcycled, (it's those loops you find on clothes 
to keep them on the hanger) the buttons are from my stash!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like my little card!
 I had lots of fun making it up!
I hope you can play along in the challenge!

Addicted To CAS - Animals
