Twofers cats

I saw this new challenge blog - Twofers - and wanted to join in their first challenge which is all about "cats" - my favorite animal. I made two CAS A2 sized cards in black and white using images that came free with a magazine last year.

Card number 1 with the three cats:
The layout is inspired by the sketch over at Sunday Stamps. I used an embossing folder to make the striped background, I machine stitched around the edges and used 2 different circle dies to cut out my images and sentiment. I finished off my card by adding three sequins.

This card is for these challenges:
Sunday Stamps - #106 Sketch
Crafty Creations - #294 Four (4 circles)
Simply Create Too - #91 Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - Stripes or Checks

Card number 2 with one cat:
On this one I stamped my cat on a tag cut with a Dienamics die. I left this image uncolored as well.
I mounted the tag on foam onto a white paper, I scored some lines to make a frame. I added paper string and seambinding ribbon as well as 3 sequins.

This card is for these challenges:
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
As You Like it Challenge - Fur or Feathers (Cats are my favorite animals)
Crafting When We Can - # Ribbon, twine or washi
Pile It On - #80 Sequins and/or Beads
