Dynamic Duos #35 with Mojo Monday Sketch #276

Last evening I received some new Close To My Heart papers and stamps and had to use this adorable "Cozy Cat" as soon as I could today.   This happy cat will appear in the new Close To My Heart catalog on February 1 as will the light green Chantilly paper.  Dynamic Duos #35 colors this week are Saffron and Certainly Celery and I substituted CTMH Buttercup and Sweet Leaf.  I really liked the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday #276 and decided to use it.  The cat was stamped twice--once onto Buttercup B&T paper (retired CTMH) and then again on Chantilly (soon to come CTMH).  The cat was popped up from the cushion using 3D Foam Dots. Don't you LOVE how the background circle and border have the same pattern to them?  They were made with the CTMH Artiste cartridge (circle is accent 4 from page 31 cut at 3.5"and the border is accent 4 shift cut at .75".)  I started with a 5" x 6.5" card to accomodate the large circle and trimmed it a bit to have the border end up perfectly on the card.  A tiny drop of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel was applied to the cat's color.  The grey and white twine on the border is from the Baker's Twine Neutral Assortment from Close to My Heart.

Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch:
