Black and White Cat

Hello everyone! I'm thrilled to announce I'm part of a DT on a new challenge blog called Unicorn that launches on 1st September. We're a monthly challenge for all crafters. We will be having a GD call out for the whole of June so please come on over to Unicorn, grab our badge and become a follower to be kept up to date. You can also see what the rest of the very talented  DT have been making.  The DT have been asked to introduce themselves and their work so I've made a card to show the sort of cards I like to make.

 Here's a card I've made for my Nan's birthday.  She'll be 93 this year, still lives in her own home and is sharp as a tack.  I don't get to see her often as she doesn't live locally unfortunately.  She used to have a black and white cat so when I saw this kit I thought of her straight away.  Isn't he cute with his little bow and butterfly!

I've used some pale blue card and flowery papers from my Docraft Capsule Collection pack and some sticky flower gems.  I coloured a peel off sentiment with a pro marker.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Bloghop birthday
