Kitty Easel for a Bunch of Challenges

Well, I'm still not fully operational, but I do have a new pc.  Have not been able to retrieve files from the old computer nor do I have my printing program back, but I did have this adorable image called Cat, by Anne Fenton, already printed and ready to color prior to the computer catastrophe.  It is the September Progressive Challenge Freebie on the Outlawz Forum.  In light of this fact, I've tried to construct my card to fit as many of the weekly challenges on the Outlawz Forum as possible, as well as a few others I regularly participate in.  I'm quite busy with party plans for my BFF's 60th birthday September 30th, on top of all the computer woes, so time is limited.

First of all, I've used the Wednesday Sketch challenge, but also made it an easel card for the September/October special challenge at TTRCD in Autumn colors which is one of the themes.  Here's the sketch which I've obviously turned upside down.

Monday Greetings has Tic Tac Toe board with a Thinking of You theme and I've used the diagonal from top left of Flowers, Image, and Ribbon.  The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art Halloween Bundle and the dimensional flowers are from K&Co.  Fortunately, I had a sticker sentiment in the right theme since I'm not even hooked up to the printer yet.  I've colored it brown with my Copics to make it stand out a bit more.

Saturday Paper Ala Mode wants your project to Pop Up, either with pop dots or to actually pop up inside. Both the orange mat and sentiment are popped for dimension, as well as each flower his raised with two pop dots apiece. Twisted Thursday is always AG but the twist this week is Leaves.  Well, I'm not sure this qualifies for the twist, but it flies for AG.  Yay!

Here's a closeup of Cat by Anne Fenton.  I totally LOVE this image and really enjoyed trying the no lines technique by printing him in a light brown and practicing the fur techniques from Kit and Clowder using my Copic markers.  Thanks so much Anne for this delightful image.
