DYSU Challenge #96

Good Morning All,
Oh my - the 1st November - where has the year gone!!  
Time however, for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up? where our theme this week is BRADS. Nice and easy!!

and our sponsor this week is the very generous

who are giving our winner a $25 Gift Certificate

My card for this challenge uses this adorable little cat and sentiment from the Cool Cats set by Market Street Stamps, which you can find HERE.  I have paper pieced her (definitely a she cat) and created a simple round card using one DP and an embossed circle which has had another circle cut from it off centre. A swipe of Distress Ink, a few brads and the sentiment and it was finished. Quick and easy but such fun to make. The circle and cat are attached with foam pads for some dimension.

Look at that cute smiley face - love this little kitty!!

Paper - sorry no name have had them lying loose  in a drawer for ages
Dotty Embossing Folder
Spun Sugar Distress Ink
Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities
Brads from stash

So, I hope you like my little piece of inspiration and that you are inspired to get out those brads and join the fun. For more inspiration - pop on over to the DYSU Challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the team's gorgeous creations - they are amazing!!
Thank you so much for looking - I shall be back later with my In The Pink GDT card.
