Two Cards

I have two catty cards to show you today.
The first uses this adorable kitten image from digi stamp company From the Heart, brought to my attention by Princess Judy. How could I resist?
The image is colored in pencils using the sketch from Taylored Expressions Share the Joy Challenge #18. The image is mounted on a snippet, with the sentiment and blue dotted layer also snippets.
The cat card is entering these challenges:
Bugaboo Birthday Bash Day 1 -- "Wild thing, you make my heart sing"
Taylored Expressions Share the Joy #18 -- sketch
The Paper Shelter #231-- shades of blue
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- best friends
From the Heart -- January image challenge
Pixie's Snippet Playground #212 -- use snippets

The other card is inspired by the tag at Tag You're It #38, using the layout from Bugaboo's 6th birthday party sketch challenge. The lion (from Autumn Leaves) is colored in pencils, fussy cut and popped up over a water-colored tag. I used three lines of rick-rack for the diagonal element on the sketch, and added baker's  twine to the tag as well.
