Simply Create Too Challenge 25 Midway Extra - Colour Combo

The Simply Create Too challenge is at it's midway point so here is my inspiration for the colour combo theme of:

Yellow, Orange and Black

I'm not much of a Halloween person so I had to think of something a bit different and this ginger cat was perfect!  I've used a freebie image which was pre coloured (the best kind!) and sentiment from a recent Papercraft Inspirations magazine and cut the image with an X Cut fancy die then added a faux running stitch around the edge.

The papers are Cosmo Cricket Mr Campy - I do like these papers! And I've added black card for layering.  The ribbon is from the scrap store and I've added a recycled button and some embroidery thread.

There are 6 images to the sheet of A4 and I've simply printed them as they came, so I have some more to go at and I have a feeling I'll be using the same papers too!

Good luck with the challenge - for more details pop over to Simply Create Too!
