Lucky Black Cat

'Cool Cats' is the title for the challenge from My Time to Craft this week and I decided to incorporate a few other challenges with my DT card.
There She Goes - 3 Embellishments - Lace, Ribbon, Brad
Pink Elephant - Birthday
Fussy & Fancy - New (Brad making kit)
Crafty Catz - Bright & Sparkly (Bright white with bling added to the brad)
Crafty Creations - Black, White and a Splash of Colour (not so much a splash as a stroke... the cat's collar)
Crafty Angels - Can you feel it? - There's lots to feel... embossing, lace, brad, ribbon.
The lace had been hanging around in my sewing box for ages and I think it is doing a little more good on this card than in the bottom of the box. The white card is embossed with a Cuttlebug (Victoria) embossing folder. The paper is from Pink Petticoat. I have just acquired the brad making kit from Papermania. My local Paper Mill Shop had them on sale and I succombed on Saturday. I'm rather glad I did as I am pleased with how this one has turned out.
