Feline Friends

 I got a pack of these sweet flower shaped cards the other week and thought I would try and use one. I am so pleased the way it turned out. I started with an image from Debbi Moore cd rom Paper delights, flutterby. I cut it out with a fluted nestie and then lightly inked the edges. I then stamped a Papermainia image and cut out and embossed using a round nestie. I then lightly brushed the card on the edges with a dew drop blue ink pad, letting it go through the apertures to produce this effect inside. I repeated the little flourish stamp inside and out as it fitted so well in the space. I'd like to enter this card into CD Sunday challenge which this week is Feline Friends and Charisma Cardz challenge - shaped cards.
It reminded me whilst printing the cd rom element. I forgot to take the supersmooth paper out of the printer when I printed the boarding cards for Paris. So OH got his printed on supersmooth but mine was on copier paper. When we boarded the plan the air stewardess remarked on the silkiness of the paper!
