Cat on a Fence

I am just getting in under the wire with this card for the Dies R Us Challenge #98-Sunshine or Clouds. I really had to hunt to see if I even had any dies I could make into a card and finally found this Cat on a Fence die from Cheapo Dies which I thought I could use. However, I colored it with my colored pencils and I am now wishing I had used some markers instead. But it is what it is. Not my best work that is for sure. I hope you can see the sun shining behind the die.


I also layered the Cat on a Fence die onto a Cottage Cutz double stitched circle die cut. The background on the card was done by using a background stamp from Gina K. Designs. And, my sentiment is from the Altenew Shadow Play stamp set.

It is a pretty simple card but it still took me a long time as I had to search for something that might work. I am ready to drop now as it is nearly 11:00 p.m. and time for bed. Have a good night all.

God bless,
Verna
