Red Carpet Studio Challenge #82: Marley & Me

Time for another Red Carpet Studios Challenge!!!
The movie this time is Marley & Me so the theme is ANIMALS. Make a paper craft project with this theme and link it up over on the Challenge blog and you might win this:

It's a little something I threw together for the winner! I admit that I pulled it out from my stash...unopened packages and brand new stuff that I never got around to using and probably never will.

Here's my card for this challenge:

Party Cat:  This is a larger card, 6.5" X 5". Staying true to the movie theme, I knew I wanted to use my cat on the card. (So ala Kristina Werner, who always colors her stamped cats just like the one she owns, I did the same!) I had this digi-stamp from Bugaboo Stamps of the cat in various framed positions. I colored him with Distress Markers with no particular technique. I wanted to use up some old papers so decided to play off of the blue background and went with turquoise and orange. I customized my sentiment with an alphabet stamp set.

Here's my inspiration:

This is my cat, Aussie, who doesn't always "help" in my art room or craft space or anywhere I want to spread out paper. He's a big boy (15 lbs) who likes to curl up in my lap in the cold winter months when I watch late night TV.

So go over to the Red Carpet Studios Blog and link up your pet project! I'd love to visit your blog and see what you've done.
