What's New Pussy Cat? - Challenge #9 at Cooking It Up!

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for another challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie card recipe blog.

This time the recipe is:
1. Use a "non human" image
2. Add some texture
3. Use a product you've never used before.

As always I couldn't stop at just one challenge and had to add just a couple (20!) more! LOL
Friday Sketchers had a super sketch
Corrosive wanted you to "Go Digi"
Cute Card Thursday had a color combo of Pink and Grey
Bee Crafty wanted your Favorite Color combo and a digi image
Incy Wincy wanted your favorite coloring medium
Paperplay had a "Furry Friends" theme
Crafty Pad also had an Animals theme
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle had a Girly theme and so did Scrap and Stamp Saturday
Secret Saturday Crafter had a "Musical" theme and I think the sentiment on this card works for that ;)
Raise The Bar is a brand new challenge and they wanted you to "Debut" something and this image is super new and it's definitely making its Debut!
Dare U 2 Digi wanted to see Buttons and so did Little Paper Shop. I used my Buttons border embossing folder and I hope that counts!
Daring Cardmakers had a Hole In One theme
Crafty Ann wanted to see some Embossing
and so did Practical Scrappers
A Spoon Full Of Sugar wanted to see "Lots of Layering"
Creative Card Crew want you to "Punch It!" and so do Simon Says Stamp
Belli wanted Hearts



As a cat love I just couldn't resist using one the fabulous new images from Lily Boo's Cat Collection
I colored her with Copic's and gave her a very regal bow to go with her regal look! LOL
The dp is Imaginisce "Fairest of the All" which I thought was fitting for the Princess ;)
I used Martha Stewarts Valentines Lace border punch to create "Paper Lace" in two different widths to fit with the sketch. I added a row of embossed Buttons from the Cuttlebug border folder and added silver to the "holes" on the buttons. Then I added a few pink rhinestones for an even more "girly" feel.
Finally I printed out the sentiment and cut and nested it with a scalloped circle Nestie.
I added a few more touches of silver with my Prismacolor pen.



Inside is more of the super sweet dp and a message mat.



Here's a close up of "Her Royal Highness"! LOL
Be sure to go and play in my challenge at Cooking It Up With Katie as you'll have a chance to win the image set this kitty came from or your choice of any set that you can see at Lily Boo's Boutique!
