Let's Craft and Create challenge # 98

Good evening friends.
We have just had a lovely shower of rain. Here in my part of South Africa we only have summer rains and the last rain we had was in April this year. It has been a dry start to the summer, with a small shower last week and a sprinkling a few days later. This evening wasn't anything WOW, but it settled the dust, and that we have plenty of. We have just moved into a Retirement complex, where there is a lot of building and...you guessed it ...DUST, so the shower of rain was lovely and cooled things down just a little.

Anyway..down to business. This week we have a new challenge at  Let's Craft and Create with the theme Animal Antics. The DT have some lovely cards for inspiration.

Here is my card
 
I decided on a zig-zag card for a change. I find one gets into a rut, making  one type of card, so it was great to do something a little different.
 
Paper - I used black cardstock and made my own patterned paper by stamping with an Impression Obsession 'Cover a card' stamp..tiny flowers. Also used kraft cardstock for the diecut behind the cats, the heart and the label.
The cats are from Marianne Design, and I cut them in black and white and layered onto the kraft card.
The sentiment comes with the die, stamped it onto a Nellie Snellen label.
Finished off with a ribbon bow and some pearls.
 
Will enter some challenges:

Party Time Tuesdays #186...Anything goes
Aud Sentiments  #117...Anything goes

That's it from me. It has been a long day, but hope to see you back here in the morning bright and early. Take care.
 
Love Ursula
