Pals Paper Arts

I have just discovered Pals Paper Arts challenge blog and loved what I saw.
I think that although I do lots of challenges with complicated sketches, I really feel that my preferred style is simple and unfussy!
My daughter asked me to make a card to give to her next door neighbour, whose cat has just died. She lives alone with her 2 cats and so the loss of one is deeply felt. I thought it was a lovely thought on my daughter's part.
I made the surround of the oval following a tutorial pointed out by my friend Clare on the Cuddly Buddly Forum.
It's a strip of Martha Stewart border punch, almost snipped through between each scallop and then curved around the oval.
Otherwise it's just an image of a cat, coloured with Copics, and mounted on Nesties accompanied by a ribbon.
The neighbour's cat was grey, which was the reason for my choice of grey for the card.


  1. Very sweet card with a lovely little image! Love the tiny soits of yellow - thanks for playing at Pals Paper Arts!
