Boy card with a cat

We have two grandsons with birthdays this month.
For the older one, I created this card that features a cute little tiger looking cat which I downloaded from CLKER.  I laser printed it along with the greeting and watercoloured both in warm tones.  I layered the image over decorative paper and trimmed the right side with pinking shears to echo the little triangles in the image.  I layered the image over a background I created using several strips of decorative paper glued to my rust card front.  I used a paw die cut as an embellishment and adhered it using 3D foam tape.  The greeting was too long so I cut it apart and added faux stitching in black then layered them next to the paw print.
It is fun to make cards for kids!!  You get to use different images, papers and bright colours.
