Charisma #9 - 4 Legged Friends

Our new challenge this week at Charisma is 4 Legged friends! and we have THREE fab sponsors too, wow!

Simon Says Stamp are very generously giving a $20 gift voucher to our winner.

Meljens are offering 4 Digi's of the winners choice

And last but not least, our final sponsor is Crafty Emmas!

For my project this week, I've used this really cute cat by Meljens! He looks so peaceful having a sleep with his mouse friend! I've coloured with promarkers and inked around the edges with Antique linen DI. The image is cut out with deckled rectangles nesties and matted onto some really cool leather effect silver card. The patterned paper was from a sheet I got at the NEC last November but I cant remember which company, I think it might have been payperbox. I've inked the eges and corners of this with DIs too. The paw print ribbon I got from my last trip to the USA and the sentiment is from craftwork cards. I've added some black gems to finish off.
Thanks for looking!
