One card and two challenges woop woop!

But before I start… Introducing Triny:

I wish I could tell you that I got a new cat, but no, I live with two cat-hating dogs and my mother who is cat-phobic… Triny is a stray kitten I rescued from next to a major road, she was literally ONE step from getting on to the path of oncoming traffic. There was one time when I picked up a dead kitten who was killed by traffic, to prevent it from being run over and over even after death. Its body was still warm when I put it by the side of the road (couldn’t bring it home to give it a decent burial) and I was so heartbroken for it, so I really feel for stray animals, and most especially when I know they will be in immediate danger unless a human intervenes.

Triny was mewing in distress and seeing it had no mother cat around to find it and bring to safety and it was alone and clearly lost, I carried Triny back, and my very kind neighbour took her in. She has grown so quickly and it has only been a few days! Before I keep digressing LOL here is my card:

This is made for the 1) Papertrey Princesses blog group challenge by Princess Leah where we have to make a card we will give away, and 2) The Shabby Tea Room Relax & Enjoy challenge where the challenge is to make a card with yellow, pink, green and any neutrals.

Holy smokes, how can you resist a colour combination like that? I couldn’t. I used felt from my stash, and the picture does it no justice but the darkest pink is a really HOT pink- if you use PTI and are familiar, it is JUST like Raspberry Fizz!

I was too distracted by a party going on in the neighbourhood to take proper pictures, so please excuse me LOL

I embossed the cardfront to give it some texture, using the Cane Print impression plate by PTI, easily one of my favourite IPs! Now that I am done showing you my card, allow me to continue….

MRAOW!!!! Triny is a fiesty one 😀
