Collection of Cats

 A few weeks back I was lucky enough to get a copy of Joanna Sheen's Ivory Cats CD on EBay.  I am a dog person rather than a cat person but the artwork on this CD is exquisite, I love it and I'm sure my many friends who love cats will too!  I printed off a few images over the weekend and have finished a couple of cards to show you.

First one is for CD Sunday's Art Deco/ Art Nouveau Challenge.  It may a different entry, but it is Art Nouveau!  Image is matted onto embossed gold card, gems, Stickles and a Craftwork Cards sentiment added to the image.  Some hand-dyed thread and some Card Candi finish it off.
I'm also entering my card for:
Simon Says - animal antics
Incy Wincy - furry friends

I love the vibrant colours in this image, but admit that I should have teamed it with black die cut cats not brown!   I didn't want the orange paper and black to shout "Halloween"...
I'm entering my card for:
Krafty Katz - B is for...   boats, buoys, black cats, blue card candi
Simon Says - animal antics
Cute Card Thursday - splish splash


  1. Gorgeous cards, not into cats either but do like the art nouveau artwork.

  2. Lovely cards. This looks like a useful CD for cat lovers. Thank you for sharing it with us at CD Sunday. Wynn DT x
