Magical Birthday Kitty

Normally I struggle with guy cards except when I need to make a card for my brother who is owned by a black cat.  Then it's Close to My Heart's Artistry Cricut cartridge to the rescue.  I thought the Magical paper pack with its mostly primary colors would complement my black cat die cuts purrfectly and guess what one of this month's themes at Heart 2 Heart Challenges just happens to be?  That's right, Magical!  The clean crisp colors in that pack lend themselves to a CAS card which is the challenge for this week at Addicted to Stamps and More.  For the layout I used this Freshly Made Sketch:

Here is the inside of the card:

Thank you for stopping by!  It has been a while since I posted and I've missed y'all.  Until next time, Hansi

  1. This is such a cute take on the sketch! That black cat is adorable and the addition of the red heart is perfect. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Such a cool die and love the cat in black silhouette, really makes it stand out against the white background. Fabulous CAS design and great that you carried it on to the middle as well. So glad you joined us at ATSM this week!
