Color Throwdown #463

I was the lucky featured stamper of Color Throwdown #461! I got an official blinkie and everything! I'm so pumped!

Here's my entry to this week's challenge, where I'm a special guest star stamper. The colors are Orange, Kraft, and White.

I did top-folding vertical "portrait" oriented cards the past three challenges, so this time I tried to change things up by going "landscape." I started with a white card base. Above that is orange paper, and on top of that is a kraft panel raised up on foam tape.

 The kitty here is colored to match my dear Rusty Buttons, our beloved cat that passed away a few years back. When I found out the colors for this challenge, it made me think of him right away! He's raised up on foam tape to make him the star of the show.

The kraft panel is decorated with stamped orange cats, acorns, and oak leaves. I embellished with orange and white twine and a few white Nuvo drops. The hand-written sentiment is on a dimensional banner. Overall I am very pleased with the card. It's a little bittersweet, what with Rusty being gone, but I think it honors his memory.

Here is Princess Honey Bunny Gumdrops (a.k.a. "Lily"), my precious angel sent from the heavens and genuine Million Dollar Cat, posing with this week's card. She was adopted from Camden County Animal Shelter, my FANTASTIC local animal shelter. We adopted her and Rusty during a "two-for-one" sale many years ago (2005!). She had to be spayed, so we had to pay for her, but they threw Rusty in for free to sweeten the deal! They have some high quality cats there, let me tell you.
