My Best Friend

My Mother-in-Law asked me to make her a card to send to her friend, who has just got a new cat. I thought this gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley would be perfect, except I've coloured the cat in wrong! Oops. I didn't know what sort of cat she had got, but apparently it's jet black all over and I did a brown one. Nevermind, Kate will still love it I'm sure!

So anyway, this card is for Lili's Little Fairies Here Comes The Girls Challenge, Papertake Weekly's Sketch Challenge #81, Totally Gorguss' Challenge #195 Anything Goes with Pearls and for F4A179 to use diamonds. I didn't think I had anything diamond shaped (a parallelogram really - I'm a Maths specialist what can I say?!), but then found this pretty paper in my Perfect Pairs pack - absolutely perfect!

And here's my card after all that waffle!
