Sunshine

It's still cold outside but the sun is shining and so Spring must be on its way. Today's card is definitely looking to Spring and better weather. I used this sweet digi from Motivet, coupled with patterned paper from Basic Grey. You need to look somewhat closely but you'll see that the yellow strip across the middle of the card is fringed; I used the Martha Stewart fringe scissors for the first time!

I went back & forth on adding more embellishments versus leaving the card quite plain. As you can see I decided on clean & simple because (to be honest) I'm just so pleased with how the colouring of the kitten worked out and I wanted it to really stand out. Generally I'm very critical of my colouring but I think I got the shading just right for this one. As well, the background papers are so detailed, I didn't want to add any more noise to the card. I left this without a sentiment so that it could be used for just about any occasion.
