MTTC challenge blog #443 Halloween or Cats theme starts 16 October 2020

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! The new fortnight theme has 2 options or they can be combined: Halloween or Cats. Since I'm in my 50s I don't typically do any Halloween cards anymore. My nieces and nephews range in age from 15+ to 30. However I do have several friends who have cats, so my intent with this design team commitment is to create a cat-themed, harvest-time colors friendship card.

#443 My Time To Craft challenge blog design team project: Hello Friend card

Supply and design notes:
a. cardstock neon orange (scanner light has faded to peach) and smoky gray = Neenah
b. "hello" black dazzle = Paper Wishes website
c. kitten clipart freebie printed on the neon orange cardstock and trimmed to about a 4" square
d. black and white checked patterned paper = The Paper Studio; I added color pencils in a repeating pattern for the white sections
e. neon green, orange and 'orchid' stars = old stash
f. orange and white cording = old stash
g. black inking on checked paper and the neon orange cardstock
