ColourQ and Get Sketchy

I put two challenges together for this card, this wonderful color combo at ColourQ challenge #33 and the sketch at Get Sketchy. They problem is I am late posting my Get Sketchy card AGAIN!!! Oh well, I like this sketch anyway.
Here is the absolutely wonderful color combo.
And, this is how I put it together with the Get Sketchy sketch #38. See my brand new border punch!!!???
And, take note of the background piece on my card, a piece of Core'dinations cardstock embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I think this is one of my favorite folders and they just don't work any more wonderful then with Core'dinations cardstock. Notice the little bit of sanding that exposes the core of the paper?
And, of course, some photos!
You might remember me mentioning how much our youngest grandson and his sister's kitty love each other. This is a common exchange between them!
We found this fun water fountain the other day. It took him a bit before he would get close enough to touch the water but once he got comfortable there was no stopping him!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
