I am not the big Halloween person I was in my younger days, but I am a huge fan of cats!!  And I love Black Cats.  So I have made a cutesy Halloween card featuring a Black Cat and his unexpected little friend.

 

Cauldron Bubble, 147710

 

Aren’t these little guys just precious?  I based my colors from the Call Me Clover green eyes of the cat.  Then I colored his little froggy friend with both shades of the Call Me Clover Stampin’ Blends.  Of course I now had to use the green instead of yellow on the hat.  But that’s OK.  We get to use whatever color we want to use!!  LOL!!

I do apologize for the shadows of the ribbon on the card.  They did not show up as much until I put the photo into the post.  But then you know I am not an expert on the photography!!

There are two things I did a little differently on this card.  I masked the hat so that the broom in laying underneath it.  I did this by stamping on a post it note (the sticky section beneath the rim of the hat) and cutting it out just inside the lines.    The second is that I fussy cut the frog and raised him up with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I especially love that he is looking towards his friend Mr. Cat.

Just to add a little sparkle, I cut three small sections of the Glitter Organdy Ribbon.  I wrapped them around a wooden skewer that is one of my pointy tools in my craft space.  It gave the ribbon just a little shape.
