New "American Shorthair" from The East Wind

You know I love me some kitties so I was thrilled when Unky came up with this new digi for The East Wind.  Meet "American Shorthair". The DP on my square card is all about cats, something I've had in my stash and was waiting for just the right moment to use.  I just got a huge order of yummy hand dyed ribbon from DL.Art and couldn't wait to use it.  The fab "leaf green" from the Fall Bundle made marvelous grass and I've used "Turning Leaf" (from the same bundle) on the tag sentiment, cut from an old Cuttlebug Emboss Plus folder.  I added flowers, to join in the SUYP (cat's only challenge) which asks for them this month, also from my stash with glitter and gem centers from JoLees.

Here's a close up of "American Shorthair".  He's colored with Copics in colors my Goliath found appropriate (because they resembled HIM).  I've also added some fur detail with my Prismacolor Pencils.  When Goliath left the room, however, I accidentally colored his eyes yellow, which caused quite the ruckus because Goliath's are green.  OOOps!  No worries.  This guy was so fun to work with, I'm sure I'll be coloring him again and again.  You'd be amazed at how different he can look in different colors so check out the FB Group and see what my teamies came up with.

Here are of all the important links you need.
