Quirky Challenge mid-month inspiration

Our mid-month challenge reminder has just gone live at Quirky Crafts Challenge and this is my mid-month inspiration card.

The photo is of a cat called Charlie who owned us for many years, he was definitely the boss of the household and though he's been gone for several years now we still miss him. I die cut a frame for his photo, coloured it with pink distress ink (which has come out looking red!) and stamped paw prints around the frame. I used a background of carpet-patterned paper and added the cute kitty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, one of our sponsors.  The image is from the Tall Jungle Blocks digi set at Bugaboo Stamps, our other sponsor.  It is meant, of course, to be a tiger but I've coloured it to look like a domestic cat.

  1. Charlie's photo is gorgeous! Love the ribbon and cat digi too - a fab card! I find colours quite often come out wrong on my photos - so annoying! xxx

  2. Charlie looks like a lovely boy Jane. I've used photos of our Maggy on cards too. Your card is lovely and great design work. Barbxx
