Anything Goes at Aurora Wings

It's a new challenge day at Aurora Wings with the ever so popular ANYTHING GOES theme.  To be honest, ATG is more difficult for me than having a narrower theme because I have the hardest time making up my mind which of the fabulous images I want to use.  Jezebel to the rescue, reminding me that I've not colored nearly enough of Mitzi's fabulous kitties so I let her choose.  She's recently developed quite the sweet tooth so I wasn't surprised that she chose the adorable Cupcake Kitten.  I've made a tent card with Dp's from the 8x8" DCWV Sweet Stack and cut the window with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen.  I thought the ribbon detail looked like frosting and the sweet cupcake embellies are from Melissa Frances.

The adorable image was printed twice.  Of course I had to color the kitty white, since Jezzie thinks white cats are the boofiest (most beautiful) of all.  Okay, it was already white, but the shading was done with a light touch of Copics and Prismacolor pencils for the fur detail.  The yummy cupcakes were colored totally with Copics.  I've fussy cut the full image and then just the two front cupcakes and popped them for dimension.  They're all sitting on a lacy border punch from MS.

Here's a little better view of the dimension inside.  While looking for some suitable embellies, I came across those large chipboard letters in my stash.  I have no idea where they came from, or who they're by, but I gotta say, they brought the whole thing together for me.  Now go check out the ATG choices by my talented DT sisters on the AW Challenge Blog. We can't wait to see what you create.  And don't forget our Animals Challenge on the Stamps by Aurora Wings FB Group page that runs through March 31.  See you all there.
