My Showdown Entry

I've had this cool cat from Hambo stamps for awhile and thought it was time that she make her appearance on a card.  Not sure if the picture shows how bright this really is but it looks good in real life.

Over on 2 Sketches 4 You they are having their 1st Annual Ultimate Card Showdown.  Laura gave us a sketch to follow.  I turned the layout around and had my image hang off the top like a tent card.  The yellow card base is cut to 5.5" wide by 3.5" tall and with my cool cat makes it to 4.25" (for a regular size card).  I had originally colored her orange but it was just a little too bright so I tried to tone her down a little bit by adding some brown.

This was a fun challenge!  Keep your fingers crossed that I make it into the top 30 so I can go on to the next round!

Paper: from stash
