I Love Mew!

Hello, my friends! Hope you’re having a good week! This month’s ATC Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our January ATC Challenge is Critters and we’d love to see what you create for our challenge this month!

I used my first-ever Vera Lane Studios digital image for this retro-looking ATC and I’m so smitten! My friend Carole created several projects with Vera Lane Studio cats during the Cat Lovers Hop back in October, and I just had to have some! So I bought Cat Life and Fat Cats! More to come, so stay tuned, lol!

I created a background using strips of cardstock alternating with strips of skinny Washi Tape. The cat is one from the Vera Lane Studios Cat Life collection that I fussy cut and ran a Tuxedo Black marker around the edge prior to adhering it to the background. The sentiment stamp was a freebie from The Cat’s Pajamas that was enclosed in my prize order from them a couple months ago. I finished the ATC off by adding dots of Nuvo Dandelion Yellow Crystal Drops.
