Halloween Cat

Hello there! Today I'm sharing a card I created using this sketch from the current Freshly Made Sketches Challenge:

I recently attended a crafty retreat with 13 super fun, sweet and talented friends! We had such a great time!!! While I was there I borrowed the Taylored Expressions Create-In-Quads-Halloween stencils from Lori (THANKS SO MUCH, Lori!!!) and all I can say is OH MY GOODNESS!!! This was my first time trying out any of the Create-In-Quads and let me tell you...they are absolutely AMAZING!!! So easy to line up and they make such awesome card panels!!! I will definitely be adding some of these to my shopping cart very soon!

Here's the card I made using the above sketch and one of the panels (the black cat) I created with the Create-In-Quads-Halloween stencil set:

I die-cut the cat from the stenciled panel using the coordinating die. I added some sparkle to her eyes, the moon/stars, and the green part of her hat. I love how it shimmers in person!

Tomorrow I'll share the other cards I made from the remaining 3 panels :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
