Inspired by a Song at the Crafter's Cafe

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge theme is Inspired by a Song. We're sponsored by The East Wind, SLS LinesLacy Sunshine, and DS4J.

I was inspired by the song "Stray Cat Strut" by the Stray Cats, and this "Rebel Alley Cat" digi stamp  from The East Wind worked purrfectly.

Following the song's lyrics, I made the cat orange & black with flocking. The base-card is a black, pre-embossed cardstock, but the teal & brick papers are dry-embossed with a Sizzix folder. The guitar is metal charm that I colored with a red enamel; I attached it with a star-shaped brad & Glossy Accents. The sentiment is inspired by the song as well.
