Purr-Fect Friend and an Alligator card

Hello there crafty friends,

Here are my most recent creations for MFTWSC#323.

I made a card using the new Purr-fect Friends stamp set by MFT. One of my crafty goals this year is to use my pattern paper pads more. I always admire Christy's use of pattern paper in her card series and she really inspired me to do the same. I used papers from a 6x6 pad by American Crafts. I'm sure you've all heard of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy over at The Daily Marker? In addition to creating this card for the MFTWSC I also made the card to participate in that challenge. Anyway, that cat from the stamp set is so much fun to color and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Here it is:

I'm also playing around with different color combinations; so many possibilites. This one's a cool color palette.

I'll post more pics of the different combinations I've come up with soon.

Initially, before I came up with the "Purr-fect Friend" card, I saw a dinosaur in the sketch, but sometimes I just don't know how to execute the ideas floating in my head so it ended up looking more like an alligator. I used no stamps at all but only MFT dies and some circle punches and an embossing folder. It's a strange card for me but I'm glad I gave it a try. LOL Here it is. What do you think? Can you see the alligator in the sketch? Once you see can never un-see it. Muahahahahaha.... ;)

Alrighty, that's all I have for now. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you all get a chance to participate in the 30 day color challenge; you don't have to devote a lot of time and you don't even have to finish....just start and color.

Have a blessed and crafty day.

Bettina :)
