C for Cats

I made this card for the Alphabet Challenge 'C for Cats' and am also entering the Crafty Friends  'For a Child' challenge, Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and  Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.


Card blank: 6" x 6" cream silk
Image: Lili of thte Valley 'Lili's Die Cut Kitties'
Stamp: Birthday Wishes (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine Toffee
Card: Light brown texture
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Blackberry Lane' (magazine freebie)

I trimmed the patterned paper, layered it onto light brown card and attached it to the card front.  Although the cat was already die cut, I fussy cut it to reduce the amount of white card around the image and then attached it to the card with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment onto another piece of patterned paper, trimmed it, layered it onto light brown card and attached it with foam tape ensuring the pattern lined up with the backing paper.
