Twisted Thursday--Ric Rak

Hello! First things first; Copic Certification this weekend! Now on to the card. This is my card for the Shirley's 2 Girls Twisted Thursday Challenge. The twist this week was to use add ric rak or ribbon to your card and to use the sketch provided. I love ric rak so this was a fun challenge, well they all are, but even more so this week. My circle with the ric rak border ended up being just a tad big, but I did follow the sketch. I started with this image from S2G called Bad Cat or Good Cat. Since we have three cats living in our house, the chance are pretty good that at least one of them is being a bad cat at any given moment, add in Christmas lights and then you probably have three bad cats! The image was colored with Copic markers to look like our cat Calvin and then I used a Sakura Glaze pen to color the lights.  I added ric rak around the circle and then used ribbon to make a bow at the top. Card stock is from my stash and the paper is from Target's Dollar Spot, not sure if you can tell or not, but some of the circles have glitter on them and it's very nice. 

I am headed out today to my Mom's and then the two of us are headed out on a girl's weekend to South Carolina. The Copic certification class is on Sunday and other than that, I am not sure what we are going to do. I am sure Mom will be looking for an antique store to shop in. I have a few things set to automatically post while I am gone and then I will probably add in some pictures from my trip here and there.
