Apr1BFFS Kitty

This set is called Cat Sympathy.
{by the way, this is ‘Kitty’, ODBD’s cat!
I’ve met her and given her some lovin’}

I like that the set can be used for more than just sympathy, if a friend has a sick or lost kitty… or just a cute card for a cat lover!

I stamped on Flower Soft’s Die Cut Dimensions Butterflies and added Flower Soft to the wing edges.

Isn’t that the cutest face!!

To give her fur some texture, I used a pin, dragging it across the image in the direction the hair goes. {learned from my good buddy…thanks Mel!!}
