You left a pawprint on my heart

My Favorite Things did another session of summer school last week, and it was all about color.  I'm actually teaching summer school right now, so I haven't had as much time as I would have liked to play along.  However, I did manage to squeeze in a little crafty time this afternoon, so I used the lesson on secondary colors.  Secondary colors (purple, green, and orange) are are produced when you mix the primary colors together (red, yellow, and blue--BTW, was I the only one who learned a song about the primary colors as a child??  That song has been stuck in my head all week!--The primary colors are 1..2..3...Red...Yellow...and...Blue...).  Here is my take on the color challenge.


I paper pieced the kitty with a small scale yellow and orange chevron so it would look like it was an orange tabby.  Here's a little close-up, so you can see it.  Also, I don't know why that purple is photographing so blue.  In real life it looks purple. 

I also used the MFT Sketch Challenge.  I don't usually put slanted elements on my card (I always think they seem crooked or like I a made a mistake), but it was part of the sketch so I decided to try it.  (and I don't hate it!--LOL)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
