On to my card for today. I wanted a 50th birthday card for a friend, it had to have a cat on it. I came up with this. As it is lilac season, (ours are still in bloom - just!) I used paper and lilacs from a digi kit and made a corner from them and other elements in the kit. The cat is one I had in a blog train in 2013, I've never used it, it is a perfect match methinks!.
I designed and laid out the the different elements in Photoshop using Garamond Italic font that, I thought, matched the cat's tail. I altered the colour of the cat just a shade or two to match the paper. I printed the front out and saved the corner layout and the cat with an extra head! as a PNG file and sent it to my Silhouette, have I told you I LOVE the Print and Cut feature. I then did the inside to match the outside. The recipient has an aversion / phobia to glitter so I couldn't add any, but I think the colours don't really need any. Quite simple, but I love those lilacs and the cat.
