Tangled Tinsel ~ Snarky Christmas Card

Good morning friends~  Today's card was made for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge ~ "S is for Snarky Christmas".  I didn't think I was going to be able to participate in this challenge because I didn't have any snarky stamp sets but then I remembered this adorable set by Avery Elle called Dear Santa.
This frisky feline makes me think of Zsa Zsa Gabore.  I can just hear her saying "Don't get your tinsel in a tangle, Dahling".  

I tried to make her as femine as possible, right down to her pink glittered hat and bow to her blue eye shadow and glittered rouge.  

I did a bit of stenciling on the background (pink on pink) using a stencil from My Favorite Things and Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick.  This sassy gal is framed using Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles.  The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and clear sequins were added to give it that final girly touch.

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Kickstart Challenge ~ "S is for Snarky Christmas"
Word Art Wendesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!

She is sassy, just like Zsa Zsa! In fact, her sister Eva Gabor is the voice of Duchess in Aristocats and looks very much like this! You could've been the casting director! I love the eye shadow and all the girly sparkle!
