A Newton "Thanks"

Hi all!

I'm here to share a card I made using a new stamp from a new website called Newton's Nook Designs. I recently won a stamp set from them and have been DYING to play with it! So, I got out the stamp set and had some fun. I'm entering this card in 2 different challenges. The first is The Paper Players site. They provided the color combo. The second is Simon Says Stamp! and they provided the theme. They challenged us to make a "thanks" card. Without further ado, here's my card.

I began by stamping my image (Newton's Holiday Mischief) in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I then used some scraps for the leaves. I had used some perfect pearls as a paint medium and had painted some strips of paper. It was perfect for this project! This is why you don't throw away any extra paint/perfect pearls OR any scraps of paper! :) I punched out several leaves in the orange and gold perfect pearls. I colored in the cat's scarf with the spiced marmalade distress marker. Then, I used the vintage photo distress marker to add some spots to the cat, too. I strayed from the color scheme just a bit to add a touch of pink to the cat's nose and ears. He's so cute, though! :) I then added the sentiment (Hampton Arts). Simple card--but colorful and cute.

Hoping to share more cards over the weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
