Penny Black and More - January Challenge

Hello and thanks so much for visiting! The new year snuck up on us, and I would like to wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2017!!

Time for the new challenge at Penny Black and More, and this month there is no reason not to play along as this month the theme is "Anything Goes". Just be sure to follow our simple rules which you can find on the challenge post.

For my card today I colored a cute kitty stamp from the set "Furry Affection" using copic markers. I usually struggle when trying to color a brown/orange toned kitty, but I'm happy with how this one turned out. I used E31, E50, E53 and R20 for the cat. 
The patterned paper is from Stampin Up, sentiment is from the same cute set. A little button and jute twine finishes off this clean and simple card.  
In the above photo you can have a little peek inside the card, I don't usually do much inside, but like to add a strip of matching designer paper as seen here.

This card is listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested. 

Have a great day!!
