I often find it hard to come up with new ideas for anniversary cards as you can only do flowers and champagne flute so often and I'm not one for loads of layers and embellishments as a rule just not my comfort zone. When I bought this Penny black die I thought it would be perfect for an anniversary card for a change.
I cut a circle in post it note and used it as a mask so I could create my silvery moon and coloured the rest of the card with dark blue distress ink. I cut the cat die and trimmed the coloured card to fit behind it perfectly.
I used more distress inks black and browns to colour my cats leaving the border and sitting bench uncolored apart from the smudges from colouring the cats.
I added my double layer panel to a white base card and took a tiny die cut heart coloured pink and placed between my two black cats. I didn't get as far as a sentiment as my son said he loved the card just as it was as we recently found a website with different celebration days and one was girlfriend appreciation day and he decided my card would be perfect as was for his girlfriend,so guess I'll have to start over.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-
Brown sugar - anything goes
Use your stuff - new beginnings
Penny Black and more - all creatures great and small
AAA - maskng
cardz 4 galz - cats and or kittens
