Cats in the Christmas tree

I remember when Max (my 18 year old cat) was a kitten and trouble with the Christmas tree.  While he never actually climbed into the tree, he did break his share of ornaments.  Now that he’s an old man he loves to sleep under the tree.  I used the Monthly Christmas digi by Digistamps4Joy called “Irresistible Bling” for today’s card.

    This is so cute. I adore the image (and I have 3 kitties at home and have experienced something similar to this, too) and your coloring is fabulous. Your diecut around the image is gorgeous and your background paper is beautiful. Thanks so much for joining us over at Crafty Sentiments for our challenge of “Hand Colored Image”.

    Hi Heather, loved your card.  Was wondering what svg or die you used for the red card base?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

      Hi Shirley,
      I used the second largest Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die. The sentiment tab and the rounded corner rectangle were both svg files that I made.
