Two Little Cats

A Thank You card today for a friend who is a cat lover.  
Originally, I planned to cut the image into a circle with a stitched circle die.  When I put it through the Big Shot, it flattened the embossed wall, so I started again. The cats are die cut from a snippet of black card with a Frantic Stamper 'Love Cats' die.  I punched a circle to use as a mask for the moon and inked the background with Adirondack ink, applied with Ink Dusters.  A snippet of brown card was embossed with a brick embossing folder.  The embossing folder for the background is Creative Expressions 'Pawprint Lattice'. Tiny clear gems for stars added a bit of sparkle.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge ~ Stencils/Masks (I made a mask for the moon)
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 195 ~ Use snippets
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Die Crazy
Allsorts Challenge - Week 329 ~ Sparkle
