Turning Fifty

Hi All!  Instead of throwing some scraps in my overflowing scrap bin, I used them to create a quick birthday card.  I combined the papers with a fun MDS/SU! Giggle Greetings image w/sentiment.  After paper-piecing the cat digitally and adding additional coloring and shading with Copic Markers and chalk, I just had to add a few embellishments, and this card was ready to give to my cousin who just turned fifty.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Bloggers June Challenge -- Bingo (I used Column A)
Digi Makeover Challenge #143 -- Anything Goes (must use a digi)
Digi Sketch Challenge 26th of May - Use a Stamp and/or Sketch
Shopping Our Stash, SOS#154 -- Critters (pet or animal theme)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!!
