Penny Black Cat in a Hammock!

Happy Saturday!

Well, I figured that as I am on vacation with no access to the computer I should leave you at least with something to look at!! This card was made back in February but I thought it quite appropriate as I am out on a boat, probably in the ocean and not swinging between two palm trees......but you never know!!
I love this image from Penny Black and actually got permission from the official headquarters that I can get this image painted on the back of our boat!! Not done it yet, but can't wait to sport this lazy cat on the ocean!!!
I colored cat in a Hammock with prismacolor pencils and added some sparkly embossing powder, made him 3d with pop dots and added the braided shiny string and metal shell beads to add to the beachy effect. I hope you like it.
