Clean and Simple Wags and Whiskers

I decided to make a clean and simple card for Henry's best friend Tali for Christmas, she will just be 3 when christmas comes and so I did not want too much on the card she could pull off and chock on. The flowers are sellotaped down on the back of the card for this reason. The paper is a new pack of Basic Grey (well for me) called eskimo kisses. It is a slightly different pallett to the usual christmas papers I use and so is excellent for a girly card. I have coloured the image in using copics and added a touch of candy floss stickles to the cats hat and the top of the stocking. I have faux stitched the papers slightly edged in metalic pink ink. The lace has a white sparkle to it and the flowers are WOC I hope you like.
