Scripture, Stitches and a Cat


Today marks the start of the new challenge over at Word Art Wednesday

This challenge is sponsored by The Project Bin, with a $15 voucher to their store.

I own just one of their stamp sets, Feline Good  which I incorporated into this card

The scripture is available free over at the challenge site, and is crafted for us by Karen Murray.
What cat would think/worry about tomorrow when they are a chubby as this fellow?

I not only used the stamped and die cut image on the card,

but I also stamped and clear embossed the image randomly over the card base to form a complementary background.

Some faux stitching finished the card both inside and out.

This card was made in record time, and although there were several large 'oops' moments, I had to just keep going and do some 'cover ups'.  Partially because of the time constraints, and partially because I could not reprint the scripture panel at all, as my printer is currently out of ink! 
The worst was when punching the corners of the panel - that just served to remind me why my corner punches languish unused!  Hence the positioning of the cat!!

Thank you for all the expressions of sympathy that you have posted - they are deeply appreciated

There definitely is a skill to using corner punches - I rarely use them (oops). Love your little fat cat- he looks very contented sitting there surveying the remainder of the card.
Blessings, Neet xx
