Penny Black Cat Christmas Greeting Card

I will start by apologizing for the poor quality of the photos of today's card.  It keeps getting darker earlier in Minnesota and I've done a poor job of finishing cards in time to get photos with natural light.

 I used a base of Hunter Green, with Whisper White that I embossed with my wonderful friend Norma's poinsettia folder (THANK YOU NORMA!).

 I layered the stamped image onto Bravo Burgundy, and then added a left over piece of pattern paper from an earlier Penny Black card I made last week.

 I stamped the sentiment from Perfect Punches in Versamark, and then coated in a fine silver embossing powder and heat embossed it.

 I used water color pencils and blender pens to color the image.

 I used pop dots to adhere the sentiment and covered the Christmas tree bulbs with buttons for more dimension.

Here is one more look at the finished card.

Thanks for looking!
