October Monthly Challenge and Paper Bloggers Unite Challenge

Well, this card will serve two purposes this month.

First it is a kit I got from SoniB over on the Monthly Challenge thread for October (Yikes  I have to get a kit together for November!).  She sent us all a ton of stuff to play with and this is only the first card I had the chance to make.  Since I'm partial to kitty furry babies, I chose this image to play with.
I don't usually send out Halloween cards, but I may have to make a change on that.  They are fun to create.

First I used SU Green Galore as my card base.  The Pumpkin Pie embossed edge was sent in the kit.  I just layered that on the base.  I colored my image with Copics (big surprise!).  I cut the corners using my SU ticket punch and then matted it on a piece of Pumpkin Pie.  Using some sparkly black brads I adhered that to the piece of "Blackbird" paper from In My Mind's Eye.  I love that set of papers.  Before layering that on the card, I used a piece of black ribbon and tied that over the embossed layer.  There was that empty little corner up in the left, so I found this cute sticker from Echo Park that fit just fine.

The Copics I used were  YR00, YR02, YR04, YR07, G03, G05, G07, W0, W2, W4, 0.

Second it also serves to complete the Paper Bloggers United color challenge from ScrappinCEO this month.
