I colored the kitties and accessories with my Zig Clean Color real brush markers. The background is done with distress inks; Abandon coral, Picked raspberry and Mustard Seed. The grass is Crushed olive and a little Mowed lawn.
The tree is cut from brown cardstock using the Leafy tree backdrop horizontal die from Lawn Fawn. The leaves comes from that die set as well. Before cutting the leaves, I colored a piece of Bristol paper with several colors of distress ink; Crushed olive, Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade, Festive berries, Candied apple and a little Vintage photo.
Loved how this turned out.

Behind the scenes
You learn alot by watching inspirational videos on YouTube. Nichole Spohr is a definite favorite and she shows a lot in her videos how she plans her card designs to make sure everything fits. For this card I tried it out and it worked really well. Almost turned out exactly like that ;)
