The Royal Treatment

Happy Wednesday! I am thrilled that I've been able to craft every evening this week. I think maybe I am forgetting to do something. LOL! I usually don't have this kind of time in the evening. So tonight I needed to finish a birthday card for my youngest son. He loves the color blue and he and his lovely new wife adopted two little kitties this past summer and he lives in Pensacola so he has lots of access to water. So I came up with this card.


The image is from Hambo Stamps called Cool Cat. I colored him with Copic markers and sponged some distress ink for the water and the sky. I cut the image from Spellbinder's Circles and then embossed the edge. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I cut the sentiment from a Quick Kutz tag die and used distress ink to color it. The background paper is a scrap from my scrap box. I layered it with black card stock. To finish, I added a metal arrow and the self-adhesive rhinestones. I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch as inspiration.


I'm really pleased with the way the card turned out. I hope Steve is too. I am entering these challenges:

If I close now I'll have a little more time before bed to start another card. I hope your day has been wonderful. Thanks for stopping by. We are on the downside of the week and the weekend is approaching. Yeah! Take care!

Definitely the Royal Treatment, and regal in blue! This is one cool kitty floating in his tube. I like the layout design and the rounded corners look great. Also loving the tiny metal arrow. Our daughter was born at NAS Pensacola, so we knew the area pretty well. Your son will love this very specially made card. Great job. TFS & Hugs

OMG, I love the adorable card! The image is hilarious and you colored it beautifully. We have three cats and two of them used to love the sit in the lounge chairs around our pool. It was so funny, they would lay out there in the sun for the longest time. The other cat (Daisy) stayed clear of the pool, she walked out there one day and walked right into the pool! I've never seen a cat fly but, I did that day! LOL.
