Pilin' On the Black, Purple & Orange

The theme this month at Pile It On is Use mostly Black, Purple & Orange (does not have to be Halloween; other colors used in image OK). The only really rule is to be inspired by more than one papercrafting challenge. We're sponsored by Ike's Art.

I made this card for my neighbors...they have cats & I have a dog, and we've watched eachother's pets over the years. I printed the TLC Creations sentiment ("Awesomeness runs I'm the family") on orange linen paper. The cat & dog and both paw prints are from a clear stamp set that came with a crafting magazine. I heat-embossed the paw prints in neon orange & purple, and then inked each piece with 2 shades of each color. I heat-embossed the pets in black on silver mirri cardstock. I filled the Shake It shaker with 3 colors of microbeads. I die-cut the frames in & around the shaker; the outer frame is a Graphic 45 paper. I'm pleased with how this slightly funky card turned out!
