Merry Christmas - ColorMyHeart Color Dare #528 "Wild Card"

It wasn't very difficult for me to choose my Wild Card colors for ColorMyHeart Color Dare's Challenge #528... love the traditional colors in Christmas cards and still needed cards for mailing.  So, I started out with using all the papers from Christmas Story and cut 1/2" strips of each patterned paper (about three of each) and I was able to make 3 cards with the same papers, but different.  Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch #586 was a fairly versatile sketch... instead of the rectangle panel it was replaced with the kitten stamped image.   

In my stash was Newton's Chrismas Kittens helping with the presents, or maybe not.  I took a couple patterns off the background and attempted to duplicate a couple of the strips for the gift wrapping (the dots and the stripes) using copic brush pens and the multi-liners "White" and "Gold". Newton's family were all colored with three shades of grey.  The sentiment was stamped on Mink cardstock and then layered a border of scarlet.

How cute are those kitties! Love how you kept the kitties "white" so they stand out against the busy background.

Love the use of scraps or zip strips. You've also coloured your cats beautifully. A card that you could create lots of for Christmas but each would look slightly different and unique.
