Anniversary Cats!

Good morning and if you have an Anniversary this week Many Congratulations and enjoy your celebration.

I  had several of these small pieces of co-ordinations cards, in various colours,  lying around that I'd previously embossed.  So I decided to use them with some new dies.

I  rubbed them with the sanding block to show the core of the card and added a few jewels.  They were simply mounted onto cards with different twines added and a variety of sentiments stamped in black.

I'm  popping this card over to  join in with Di's Snippets Playground - Week 232

Fabulous card, Barb. I love this die and used to die cut to cats to make a a black silhouette looks so striking against the pink. xx

Good for you at using up some card fronts. Sanding looks great, and really brings out the pretty embossing. The cats silhouette looks perfect on the bright pink & works perfectly for an anniversary. A wonderful snippets card too! TFS
