Cat's Out of the Bag!

 1. Theme:   Just Because 
Use this colour palette  --->
2. Use: Any image 
3. Make:  A penny slider project

Time for a new challenge over at Digi Choosday and the DT always has their own fun challenge to create using a criteria.  Our outline of our criteria this week is posted above!  It's always anything goes for all of our challenge entries!

I started with a that adorable kitty digi Purr-fect Kitty Cat Wishes and cut him out twice in Design Space with my Cricut.  Then I cut the backgrounds in the same light blush/pink with the sentiment from Cat's out of the Bag.  The 2nd layer of the background was cut with the track for the penny.  

The bag was cut by hand and embossed; I couldn't resist using a couple of eyelets, my Crop A Dile, and a scrap of twine to create a handle for the bag.  

After Copic coloring the kitty in a sort of sketchy style, I took the second kitty (uncolored) and glued him to the back to make a white backing and give the kitty more stability.  Then I stuck a strip of foam thin enough to fit into the track of my 2nd layer.  I stuck it in and adhered the penny to the foam tape.  I added the bag and adhered the 2nd layer of the card to the first layer and the card front was ready!  

See the kitty slide out of the bag:
