Christmas Kitty

Good morning everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!
This week it's Hazel's turn to host the challenge and she has provided us with a fabulous sketch to work with!
My card features the adorable "Puss in Boot" image from Lili of the Valley... 
It's colored with Copics, I paper pieced the boot and then I added a bit of sparkle to the trim & tag with the Wink of Stella Pen. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, the papers are from Bo Bunny- the Powder Mountain Collection and I used Pumice Stone DI for the distressing. I used a Recollections punch for the snowflakes, covered them with Glamour Dust and then I added a tiny drop of Baby Blue liquid pearls to the centers.

This is my last card as part of the MAWTT DT. After 2 years I've decided to step down and I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to Hazel and the entire team... it's been such an honor to be part of this talented design team! I'll miss you guys but I know I will 'see' you around in blogland! :)

I'm not sure if I will post again before Christmas... so I wanted to wish you all a
VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your wonderful comments! :o)
Big Hugs, Tammy

This is the cutest little card and I like how you've used a non traditional image. Your card has plenty of festive feel with your choice of DPs and I love the paper pieced detail!
