Lucky Dip - Cats!

The new challenge at Less is More is a lucky dip - to use pattern paper.  As this challenge is always about Clean and Simple pattern paper is often overlooked, so I am happy to be able to use some of my considerable stash of paper this week!

So here is my card:


I don't know the manufacturer of this gorgeous cat paper, but I loved the fact that the cats were in horizontal rows, rather than being scattered over the page.  I just cut a strip, mounted it on a black mat, and adhered it to a complementary coloured card.  This will be going to a friend who has had recent surgery for skin cancer on her face ( I know a bit about that!) and she adores cats, with two Siamese of her own.  I hope this card cheers her up as she recovers


Just had to try to capture the texture and glimmer!

Stamps:  Hello from Amy Tangerine Hey There and Friend from WPlus9 Folk Art Florals
