Three Little Kittens....

Well, I been wanting to use this "Franchesca kitty digi" from M5D for a while, but time keeps slipping away from me these days. And having just introduced you to my 3 girls in the post below, I decided to color up 3 images with my Prisma Pencils to represent them. :)
This is my first attempt at this tri-shutter style of card. I've seen so many of you do this and it just seemed so intimidating. I finally decided to give it a try thanks to this beautiful inspiration from my friend Carolyn. And it was so much easier than I anticipated. I'm definitely sure I will make some more of this style of card in the future. :)
You can find the Avantgarde designer paper at M5D as well. I textured and distressed with inks and then added some Cuttlebug die-cuts for embellishment.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
CAS - tastic Challenges: CWC012 ~ use a stamped or digital image, paper piercing & embossing
Stamp Something ~ Digital
Stampin Sisters in Christ ~ Something that gives you peace
Our Daily Bread ~ Color something
Creatalicious ~ 3D
Pollycraft ~ Bold & Bright

Thanks for stopping by! :)

I have never made one of these style cards, they fascinate me, they look so complicated! Your embellishments make it so elegant, but the kitty is too cute! Thanks for joining us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This is such a beautiful card. I am so glad that I could inspire you. I was nervous about it at first too, but it is so much easier than it looks, isn't it? Your kitties and the coloring are wonderful, and they do look like your own kitties at home. I love those dies that you added to each of the panels. Very elegant detail. Can't wait to see more of these from you!
