The Cat's Pajamas Color Challenge

Well, here it is. This is my card for The Cat's Pajamas color challenge. I knew I wanted to use the lava lamp and have Poochie looking at it. I wanted the lava to be colored and funky, but the actual lamp to be black. I ended up stamping Poochie and the lamp in black and then on another piece of paper I did the faux shaving cream technique with the lamp. I cut out the lava portion and stuck it on the black image. I went over certain parts with my black and clear glaze pens. I was trying to stick with the circles theme so I used my tiny circles cuttlebug folder. I layered the pink and yellow over the black before putting that piece in the embossing folder. It is hard to see, but I used the glaze pens on some of the embossed circles. The paper is Papertrey's stampers select white for the base, and then SU!'s Basic Black, Pink Passion, Yoyo Yellow, and Whisper White. The yellow polka dot ribbon I got in a PIF so I'm not sure where it is from. I used my SU! ticket corner punch and black brads on this also.
