Cat’s Lucky!

Well,it’s Monday so it’s time for a new challenge at Pear Tree Designs.This week we want to see your GOOD LUCK  cards/projects.So the words GOOD LUCK must be visible somewhere.

We also have THE CHARACTER CAFE as our sponsor and the winner will get $10 Gift Certificate as their fantastic prize to spend in their store!!They have some beautiful images.So head on over to join in the fun but PLEASE check out the rules in both the sidebar and challenge post.Take a peep at the brilliant DT samples while you’re there and maybe welcome our newest member Karla!

For my card I’ve used a Lucky Cat or his proper name Maneki Neko.He’s from Banana Frog’s Kawaii Kokeshi set.I’d already done my homework on these little cuties before and found apart from the traditional ones you mostly see they do come in different colours/designs.So I thought I’d go with these colours to compliment the papers.I’ve also added pearls as they are seen in many cultures as a symbol of good luck.Apart from that that are just so pretty!


Supplies :
Image : Part of Kawaii Kokeshi set by Banana Frog
Sentiment : Computer generated by me
Mediums : Promarkers,Lemon Atyou Spica Copic on bell and coin and Black Atyou Spica Copic on his ears,eyes nose and collar(altho’ the camers hasn’t really picked up on this),Real Black Impress Dye Ink Pad (find this works better on clear stamps better than Memento)

Tools : X-cut guillotine,Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies Eastern Round,Nestabilities Standard Circles,Cuttlebug Vintage 2 x 2 Die Set (corners),Crafts Too Daisy embossing folder, Sizzix Big Shot

    Very cute card! Our granddaughter was intrigued by this cat that was in all of the stores in ChinaTown in San Francisco. She asked one of the elderly Chinese ladies what it was. She was told that the cat was waving at customers–and telling them to “bring money” into the store. Liz would love this card! Thanks for playing in the Bugaboo Challenge.
