Pretty Kitty for Paper Players #246

Hello there! This week at The Paper Players, we have a sketch challenge to play along with. I’m also excited to say that I am hosting the challenge this week, so I would love it if you would join us. :) Here is the sketch I came up with:
I recently ordered this adorable “Nine Lives” kitty stamp set with matching dies from Paper Smooches. The fluffy kitty reminds me of my little Sophie and I attempted to color her to resemble her. My Copic marker skills are improving, but I still have a LONG way to go. 

I grabbed a piece of SU Designer Series Paper from the Confetti Celebration pack and used that to pick my card stock colors for the layers. I went with Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding. I felt like this card needed more texture, so I used the Fancy Fans and Decorative Dots Embossing Folders. I just love that tiny trio of paw prints! I made this card to send off to my friend who runs the cat rescue that I adopted Sophie and Triple from. We are actually planning an event to make cards that the she can use to send to adopters and supporters of the rescue, which should be a lot of fun. 
Please join us over at The Paper Players this week! 
The challenge will close Friday, May 29th, 2015 at Noon (PST).

Before I sign-off, here is a photo of my kitty, Sophie. She 10 months now and is currently in a phase where she can be extremely moody. One minute she is cuddly and then out of nowhere, she tries to act tough. It’s pretty funny, especially when she flashes her tiny teeth. Such a sassy girl! Have a great day! :)
