This is the first card I made. I received both images in swaps years ago and always thought they would go well together. I trimmed the stamped image of the cat (unknown) and used a black permanent marker to add a nice layered look to the edge. I trimmed the fish bone background (Magenta), layered it onto red and then added it to the black card front. I glued the little laser printed greeting that I found in my stash to the back of the cat image and glued it to the front of the background. I really considered colouring the image but in the end decided I liked the simple look of black and white with one colour.
I would highly recommend giving all your non cardmaking friends some handmade cards!! They are useful creative gifts which can give as a unit or sending along to their family and friends!! It is a win-win gift!
