A Cute Card for Friday Sketchers.....

For this card I had to combine two challenges hence the title of my post. Over at CCT they want you to use cats or dogs in your card. I am not sure if they are supposed to be the "main" image but this is what I came up with. I also used the wonderful sketch from Friday Sketchers. I just placed the buttons on the opposite sides.
I decided to use this adorable H & S image that I had obtained in a swap for a Halloween card. (Thanks again sweet friend ;) While I was coloring it in my dear little gal says to me "Is that a tiger and a bee mixed up?" I was cracking up so hard because I didn't even think about it. I was coloring it in to match!! haha Oh well!!
I covered the bat and cat in some liquid glass to give it more dimension. Also I ran the larger white piece of cardstock through the cuttlebug. I rubbed my black inkpad directly to the folder, put my paper in and then ran it through. I love the effect of this. I then went around the outside with the inkpad as well.

Papers: DCWV fall stack
Stamps: Cat and Boo ~ Stampin' Up, Bat ~ ATS
Inks: Distressed Inks, twinkling H2o's
Accessories: Velvet Ribbon ~ Queen & Co. , Ribbon ~ Martha Stewart, buttons ~ stash


Thanks again for stopping by and have a fabulous Monday!!
