No Flowers Allowed!

Good morning, I for one am very glad it's Saturday. It's been such a busy week and I can now relax as I'm off work for just over 2 weeks :-) It's time for a new challenge at Allsorts and our theme is 'No Flowers' hosted by the lovely Helene. Our wonderful sponsors are Craft Fairy and Digistamp Boutique

I initially broke into a cold sweat at the thought of not adding flowers as pretty much all my cards have flowers on them (apart from those for a male!). I then spied a fabulous cute cat image at Digistamp Boutique and had a flick through my paper stash and came up with this. I fussy cut the image to get rid of any white space...

Image - Duchess Cat by Digistamp Boutique coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Papers - RSVP by Basic Grey
Sentiment - Garden Vignettes by Barbara Anne Williams from Cuddly Buddly
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
