A Fairy Meowy Christmas

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is a color challenge. 

Here's the color palette and photo inspiration, courtesy of Fresh Hues/Design Seeds.

You should definitely enter this challenge. All you need to do is color an open line image with any colorant you choose and follow this color palette! You should also visit my Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teamies' blogs for inspiration! Carla, Penny, and Laine are seriously talented!

Here's my card that features Ppinky with Flaffy Kitten

Ppinky with Flaffy Kitten was resized in PhotoElements and printed onto Neenah cardstock with my laser printer. The image was colored with Copic markers, then die-cut with a die from the Squares Nestabilities die set by Spellbinders. You can't tell from the photo, but her wings and face tat sparkle, thanks to the addition of Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. Holly Stickles glitter glue was run along the outside perimeter of the image panel and left to dry in a different room over night. Why a different room? So I didn't give in to the temptation to touch the glitter glue to see if it had dried yet, thereby smearing it. Ha! This old dog learned another trick.

But I digressed. Back to the subject at hand...The image panel's mat and flag are patterned papers from a 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. The base patterned paper is by Memory Box that I've had forever and two days. Red gemstones finish the card.

The patterned papers were layered according to a sketch from Completely Christmas Challenges.
Here's the sketch so you can decide how I did with it!
