Falloween kitty

I regretfully admit that I did not play with my digital freebie last week at 
Delightful Inspirations. School Maisie Belle was printed and given a
sentiment but never made the front of a card, but stay tuned, she will get her due.
 (It's been a bit sad around my house for the past week.
God has given us strength to forge ahead and healing has begun for us all.)
With this being the first digital freebie this month it's all mine with out playing last week.
PLUS...I won name that puppy..go see him HERE.
He was a fb contest...I named him Puppy Magic
and WON!!!!!
back to the kitty.........
 I paper pieced using orange mulberry paper. Cut it out not too close to some of the edges.
Wet the edges with an aqua painter and 'shredded' a bit of the edges to look 'furry'.
Then I cut the tail out, the face I cut out of the same paper as the tail and made sure to cut inside the lines for some of that 'fur' to hang out around the kitty like...right?
Debating about sending this over to the Kraft Journal.
There is kraft paper all right, but the theme is 'something grand' in honor of
Grandparent's Day. No grand parents for me, but I definitely could
send this one off to a grand child as a 'grand' gesture.
Thanks for coming by!

the mesh is from Club Scrap, the sentiment is a partial from Festive Favorites at Stampin Up.
distressed stripes er from cuttlebug. papers are bits of this and bits of that.

Darling card- I love the distressed edges and the embossed lines thru the card. The paper piecing is awesome!

Soo sorry to hear it's been sad in your house recently Joanne & I hope you're all ok.
Gorgeous card as always.
Take care sweetie :)

Hi Joanne! That "grand" can be interpreted in lots of ways. :-) I love the use of the mulberry paper to make your cat furry. Great little extra for your card. Thanks so much for playing along this week at The Kraft Journal!
