Naughty or Nice? Happy Pawliday! Color Dare #576

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #576 "Six Pack" which matched the colors in the CTMH Paperpack "Evergreen".  Still need to finish up with my Christmas cards and thought that Try Stampin' on Tuesday had a great sketch for this paperpack.  And didn't realize until writing my post that tree was the optional twist.  

The CTMH stamp set "Happy Pawlidays" is so cute and loved the grumpy Kitty. A lot of patterned papers were used in this card and they all seemed to go together.  My first attempt at coloring Kitty was using a Pine color Copic which I had already glued down to my card; but it was too dark.  Sooo... I stamped another Grouchy Kitty on a sage patterned paper, fussy-cut the tree only, carved out the face and layered on top of the first Kitty to add dimension. 

The tree ornaments were colored in Acorn,  Liquid Glass added to each and then appllied glitter.  Glitter was added to the Mouse's scarf. Click photo to see the glitter, liquid glass and dimension.  

Kitty still didn't look very happy with her glitter, but them mouse appeared happy with the glitter scarf, or was it the candy cane.  On the inside border a strip of the same background paper was adhered. 

RANDOM DRAW PRIZE:  Can you  guess who was naughty and who was nice?  I have a prize for you... all you need to do is comment below on this post and tell me why and who you thought was naughty and nice.  

Please hop on over and join us at Color Dare's Color Board #576 and check out the Design Teams inspiration, and then let us see what you create... hope to see you there.  You might want to stop over to TSOT to see their Design Team members inspiration and see how easy it might be to combine these two challenges.

A great rescue! A bit of fun too. SO glad you shared your kitty & mouse with us at Critter Crazy, CarolG. PS. I think the cat Is naughty and I think he is going to steal the candy can away before the day is over!

Suzanne, a perfect card for a grumpy kitty... they always seem to get up into the holiday trees and cause havoc! You did a great job recovering after you changed your mind on the tree color!! I also like the way you used liquid glass for the ornaments. Thank you for playing along with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna

OMG, the look on kitty's face is hysterical! Thanks for the giggle. Punny sentiment, kitty & mouse make the card adorable. But all the papers make it pretty as well.
