Your Hugs are my Favorite!

Hey everyone!
I'm over on the Meljen's Designs blog today sharing a super sweet card that I had a ton of fun putting together!  It stretched my skills a little bit but turned out so darn cute!

Here, I'll share it with you :)
I've used the super adorable Kitty Cat Love image and colored them up with my pencils to represent my Storm and Ezio kitties.  They're sitting on a stamped brick wall.  I don't own any rectangle stamps, but I figured out that some of the Lawn Fawn sentiment stamps are perfect rectangles when you turn them over to the backside!  So I found one that was the size I wanted and stamped away!

The sweet sentiment is from Ginger's House.  It just seemed to fit with the cute little kitties snuggling on the wall.

To make the background, I just cut out a large circle to create a mask for the moon.  I started by masking off the sky and working from lightest to darkest on the moon and then splattering the colors around for some texture and dimension.  Then I masked off the moon and did the same process on the sky.  The little sparkly stars are just some glimmer mist sprinkled around :)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
    Addicted to CAS #42-Sky
    A Gem of a Challenge #123-Animals
    As You Like It-Animal or People Images?  (I prefer to use animal the card more versatility.  Animals can work for just about anyone, where as people images tend to end up needing a very specific audience.)
    Color Me Creative #95-Friends
    Deep Ocean #81-Add a Sentiment
    Word Art Wednesday #139-Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by! <3
