Elegant Kitty Card

This card is for two challenges today.

I have used this weeks sketch at Midnight Madness, they have some great sketches there, and I have become somewhat addicted!! PLUS they have loads of chances to win LOADS of goodies!

Next I took the theme at Stamp, Scrap + Doodles which is 'Monochromatic'. Lovely goodies up for grabs here too!!

I used papers from the Tinker & Co. digi-kit called Midnight Milly, which I have heat embossed with gold round the edges.

The Kitty is another of my own images, coloured with Watercolour pencils (in purple!), and layered with foam pads. The flowers I got from my local Craft Shop, along with the tiny purple brads to the side (which I have added a touch of gold to). The twirly stuff was made with thin strips of lilac paper, and the gold twirls were made with a cuttlebug embossing folder and gold card, then cut into bits round the swirls (fiddly or what!)

OK, so the gold bits aren't exactly the same tone as the purples, but it does give it a 'lift' and they are only a tiny part of the overall card. Hopefully it'll still qualify . . .?
