'Knitting Pretty' with Inky Paws Challenge #8 & Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

Hello my Friends & Followers!  Today I have another creation for you from Newton's Nook Designs!  I used the current Inky Paws Challenge Sketch #8 
and the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Baby Booties picture (NND is sponsoring the challenge this time, more on that in a moment!):
and Newton's Antics to create this card:
I used some sweater themed patterned paper in the background and colored Newton kitty to match with Copic markers (E42 and W00 I believe).  I thought this swirly loop punch I have from Martha Stewart matched the knitted pattern in the background nicely and wove some coordinating embroidery floss in and out of the loops for some fibers to match Newton's 'ball of yarn' - which was simply the stamped yarn ball that I punched with a circle punch and then added the 'knitting needle' pins and wrapped more embroidery floss around and around and around...  I masked Newton so I could make it look like he was holding the end of the yarn as he took a cat nap.
     Hope you will be able to play along with our Inky Paws Challenge and the Curtain Call Baby Booties Inspiration Challenge - you could win a gift certificate to Newton's Nook Designs in each one!  Newton's Nook Designs images are required for the Inky Paws challenge, but Jennifer generously provided some freebies on the NND Blog that you can use so you can still participate even if you haven't had the opportunity to snag any of her adorable sets yet.
     Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you will play along with us!~ Crafty Math Chick

I just think that your card is so stinking cute. I want to CASE it. Where did you ever get the BG paper?
I have entered the challenge at Inky Paws this month. I really like the images and the sentiments on those stamps.
