"Christmas Kittys on the Town" ~ MMSC29

Last week I found this really fun kitty~cat pin and it reminded me of our Guest Designing Diva logo for the Midnight Madness Challenges. I just HAD to buy it and work it into a card! :) So here it is..... "Christmas Kittys on the Town!" These colors are SO VERY out of my comfort zone and I really almost threw this one away because of it. But, I decided that since my oldest son of 18 years says its the coolest card I've ever made, I may as well run with it. I don't exactly love it, although it does make me think of a cold winter's night in the city... And by the way, if you are interested in being a Guest Designing Diva in 2010, please leave a comment on the Midnight Madness Blog. :)
Don't forget the MIDNIGHT MADNESS BLOG HOP will be here before you know it ~ December 8th-15th.

I think this is the most beautiful card I have ever seen! The red color you have used is fantastic! I have been staring at this card all day now, and I see something new all the time. It is a true eyecatcher.
The sparkle, the shine, the details, and of course the perfect colorcombo.

Great job!

I have just completed studying your card, and I must say, gorgeous!! Sort of strikes me as a new years card, the colours perhaps?? The snowflakes are a great way to place panels onto the paper and the backing for the brooch is really pretty!!! All that sparkle!! Just gorgeous!! And I guess if one felt so inclined, they could just slip that pin off and wear it!! I like it and I am glad your son helped convince you to keep this out of the bin!!
Have a great day!!
