Double Dog Dare with a cat

Heehee! This week's Double Dog Dare challenge is hosted by ME. I challenged the girls with the same challenge as my Meet the Verve Diva challenge... to use up some of the unloved stamping goodies. I just love that challenge, cause we ALL have tons of stamping stuff that we never use. For me, I am most guilty about DP and buttons. LOVE them and sometimes I think I love collecting them rather than use them!!
I was trying to make room for my new SU! DP and ran across some Apple Cider DP, remember that paper? I swear I used it only once in over a year. So, out it came and I was determined to use one of my Elzybells images, cat window . I ended up coloring the cat brown to match the DP, are there brown cats? I am allergic to cats, so I don't pay much attention. I hope this doesn't look too far fetched!! I used my Copic markers again. Man, oh man, it isn't an easy coloring medium for me. But, I spent alot of money on these little guys, so I am determined to make my cards look like Jeanne colored them -LOL! The sentiment is from Verve's Black Tie Birdies set and there is a tiny gem in the center of the flower.

The sketch for the card is from Taylor's Cupcake sketch challenge this week. I like this one, very simple and easy to put together. I don't sew on my cards, so on the vertical panel, I pierced instead. Thanks Taylor for the inspiration!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Cat Window, Black Tie Birdies
Paper - Choc chip, baja breeze, river rock, Apple Cider DP
Accessories - Copic sketch markers, chocolate taffeta ribbon, paper piercer, Kaiser Scrapbook pink gem
