A Tree of Cats

Happy Monday!  A new week with new opportunities!  A fresh start.  Don’t you just love that thought?  I sure do and I’ve got some things I want to accomplish this week, so I need to stay on task!

Today I’m sharing a Halloween card I made using an image from Prickley Pear.  A perfect tree for the upcoming holiday!  Black cats are one of those things that go along with Halloween.  I used a black and white color scheme and added a splash of yellow by coloring the cats’ eyes yellow and then embellishing with yellow buttons and ribbon.  A very simple card, really, but I’m happy with the result.  Simple is always good!  Especially on a Monday.

Stamps – Prickley Pear (Cat Tree)
Paper – Gina K white CS, SU Basic Black CS, 7 Gypsies DP (Venice)
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories – yellow buttons, SU Daffodil Delight ribbon, CM cutting system (circle)

    I live your color choices! The yellow buttons and ribbon serve to make those eyes stand out and become the focus. And I now have another Prickley Pear stamp on my wish list.
