One Cool Cat

What on earth is happening to the weather - summer returned yeaterday and today it is raining cats and dogs here.......just have to suffer it I suppose as its the one thing we can't control (please everybody don't be offended by this statement as I am well aware of global warming etc and I do the BEST I can to help fight it but it takes more then me!!!)

This first card for today is for 3 challenges - 1 of which is new to me adn to Ribbon Girl - The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge No1; FabnFunky 'Quote Me Happy' No 41 and Charisma Cardz Anything Goes Challenge. Now I have no idea what this shape of card is called but I used my Ultimate Pro - something I spent a lot of money on ages ago and have hardly ever used but hey presto - it came in useful.
I coloured in this cute freebie from Bugaboo and matted and layered him on orange and black card (had to ask Graham's help with measuring the front triangle - its great having a mathematician in the house), added sentiments and ribbon. I also used my paper crimper to jazz up the black under the ribbons.

I inked the edges of the image rectangle with Archival Ink to soften it up a bit.
Freebie 'Cool Cat' from Bugaboo some time ago (do pop along as she has Freebie every Friday and they are fabulous) coloured with PMs~
Honeycomb, Pumpkin & Spice;
Black & Cool Greys in 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5;
Papers from The Papermill;
Inked edges in Whispers Archival Black Ink;
Ribbons from stash;
Sentment I made myself using Croobie font.
