A package full of love on your birthday

Penny Black cat card by kamadesign

It was time for another birthdaycard this week and again I used a Penny Black image. This cute kitten was a delight to color. I used my favorite colorcombo pink/green and of course my beloved promarkers.

 Just like last time I used patterned papers from my scrappile. I used a piece of string and it wasn't until I was done with the card that I realized I had colored the string on the cat's package the same color. Love when those kind of "accidents" happen, don't you?

This card could be used for any number of occasions. Since the image is so cute I didn't want to make the card too cute with pastel colors or heart shapes. Instead I used a darker pink/green colorcombo and instead of a heart charm I used a leaf - perfect for a fall-themed card. I think it looks kind of vintage-y and I'm very pleased it turned out so "grown up" as it's sometimes hard to achieve with cutesy stamps.
Finished card measures 12.5x18.5cm (about 5x7")
