Stampin'Up! - You Little Furball

Hello, I am sharing a card with you today that was an urgent request from my daughter Rosie for a card for her friend Sophie who she works with.

You know the sort of phone call that starts off with 'Mummmmm, can you do me a card ....'?  The only information I was given was that the card had to have a grey cat on it and be quite plain and simple!

I decided to use the following colour scheme (unable to add Sweet Sugarplum until June 1st :(


I have a couple of stamp sets that have cats in them but, they are both retiring on the 31st May.

I decided to use a lovely set called You Little Furball - I need to decide whether or not to keep this one or include it in my BOGOF sale (details of my catalogue launch party and BOGOF sale can be found here:).

I stamped the cute cat head and body in Smoky Slate ink and mounted the image behind the On Film Framelit die - love this (sadly discontinued).

I used an Aqua Painter to create some grass then my favourite little stamps from Sheltering Tree for the flowers.  If you look carefully at the flowers you will see a sneaky peak of Sweet Sugarplum ink and also some of the A4 cardstock in the top left hand corner!

The 'scratches' behind the image are made with a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge.  

As usual, I stamped a matching insert and envelope, the cloud is an image from Sheltering Tree and was carefully placed to cover up a little smudge from a baby wipe - a happy accident as I think it looks rather nice!

I am pleased to say that the card met with Rosie's approval (phew) and I hope that her colleague Sophie has a lovely birthday too.
