This is my take on Furry Friends Challenge.

Furry friends card1

To make my card, I used Newton Nook's Naughty Newton stamp set. I love this set with Newton the cat doing lots of naughty things. Among the images, this one where Newton is sitting with couple of pots with one of them pushed over took my fancy. Newton looks cheeky in this one. So I coloured this image using copic markers. Then die cut a circle using one of the stitched circle from nested circles.

For the background, I used Tim Holtz's Splatter stencil and Ripe Persimmon distress ink to sponge. It kind of added to the mess, Newton had already made. lol! The sentiments were stamped on Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubble die cuts and adhered using foam adhesives. Finally to bring the card together, I have added Espresso 6mm and 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
