Green Eyed Cats

My friend, Barb, has Haunted House Designs blog for all things Halloween. She does amazing work. Her challenge this week was to use a poem or rhyme on the project. I had to search for this but it does make for a cute card.

All my stamps are retired and so is the cool purple paper. I do have Spookalicious on order as I have only retired Halloween sets. The paper is one of our Designer pads called Too Spooky. Was a great paper. And I used my Fiskars Treading Water border punch to do the edging. Anyway...
The cats are stamped in Noir PH ink and white cardstock then colored with Prismacolor H2O pencils. The base card is black cardstock. I had some 1/4" black ribbon and added the black button and black scrappers floss for more umph!



Here you can see the green eyes. I used my green Souffle Gelly pen and just put a dot on each eye. It rather glows! How eerie!

I found this little poem online and printed it out. I used cloud scissors to add the border. I probably should have used the Fiskars border punch but, since it was rather late at night when I finished this, I just was beyond thinking. The Halloween is a retired stamp. So what do you think??

Great card, Carol! And I so miss that paper... I'm down to just a few sheets myself :( And I'm diggin' the kitty stamp... I don't know that I've ever seen it. Great poem, and thanks for playing along with Macabre Monday.

Add me to the list of people who miss that paper - especially the design you used. I think I maybe have one piece left - don't know why I am hoarding it though! Great card
