Bugaboo Birthday Bash #5

Wednesday's challenge was 'Humor Me'

I looked through my Bugaboo images to find something that amused me and that would also do for my cousin's Birthday.

I decided today was a CAS card day..,
First I coloured the image with Promarkers.
Just a little matting and layering on a white card blank!

I will link this to Bugaboo's Birthday Bash - Wednesday
For my cousin I may add a number in the top right corner...

I was also amused by Bugaboo's Goofy Cat & Spider
Maybe not very Birthdayish but I know a little boy who would love this image on his card!!

I prepared a background sheet using Distress Ink smeared on my craft mat, spritzed with water and then mopped up by some white cardstock.

Once dry I printed the cat directly onto it.

I matted a square card blank with red spider web embossed paper and attached the cut out cat.

I added a little dark grey Promarker to the spider and touches of red and gold Stickles.

But then what of a sentiment?
I 'did wonder about

Cats don't expect Birthday presents,
they think they already own everything!

But then I came across the Haunted Design House What's new Pussycat? Challenge

 Maybe not macabre enough for Hounted House - but I will still link is to the challenge...

Happy Crafting!
